East of the M60’s Summer Mix – Rebellious Mixtape #9

A special summertime jam for East of the M60

The schools have broken up for the summer holidays, and the sunshine has inspired this playlist. For once, I shall break with the usual Rebellious Mixtape rules and consider a possible continuous playlist.

Let’s have it!

Oh, and I know there’s also Spotify, but I am also enabling you to make a few suggestions and additions by displaying the playlist.

Be warned, there may be the odd chunk of cheese or prog rock track thrown in as a possible curveball. Estimated time of playlist is around three hours.
