Highway song: a mix-tape redux.

Well the entries are in and the play lists sent out to judges across the globe for my 1st ever Christmas is Like A Mix Tape Christmas Party Contest. In preparing for the party I had to dig out amongst other items my picture flexidisc copy of the biggest selling 45 of all Time, Bing Crosby's "White Christmas", and the famous NME punk mix Pogo A Go Go NME 021. Trawling through the music room closet is always an adventure. The search for Pogo also turned up my absolute favorite mix tape.
