50ft Radio Volume Six

Welcome back to the latest edition of 50ft Radio. This time around I originally set out to make a mix for the winter with a touch of a holiday feel but it evolved like these always do and ended up being a mix of ambient music. Most of what you will hear here is piano driven but ventures into left field exploring ambient music. There are both newer discoveries and old favorites that seemed to fit in well. I still feel like its a great mix for the winter, all instrumental, great for a study session or a quiet evening with a good book. I hope everyone enjoys it!

I get a fair amount of questions about how these mixes are made with the enhances cover art and chapters. I simply use GarageBand and use the podcast format to add chapters, artwork, and links. It’s super easy to put one together and a lot of fun.

I have the next one already underway and it will contain a lot of music that I could never manage to fit into other mixes but its taking shape nicely and will probably start releasing these as a monthly series. As with the other mixes here I ask that you not re-distribute these in any way shape or form. Enjoy it responsibly. If you find music you love then, please support the artist by buying a record, shirt, or going to a show. They cant keep doing what they do without it. These mixes were created for the love of music and helping artists gain exposure to new ears not just senseless sharing. Its important to me and I thank you for your understanding. Enjoy!

You can find a zip file with the mix and track listing here. (track listing only)

    Three plays in three days: I love it, thank you very much! Highlight: track 16.

    Very excited about this but the link seems to be broken.
    Nevertheless cheers for the great work so far mate!

    I can’t seem to see the track listing in my iPad’s Music app? It all appears as a single hour-long track, whereas in Volume 5 I could jump to specific tracks within the mix during playback?

    The link was down for a bit but it’s working again. Also, the file type is exactly the same as it has been with chapters and all. I will check it on my iPad when I get a chance, I’m curious to see.

    This is a very lovely and relaxing mix. Thank you for taking the time to put it together! This one’s staying in iTunes.

    I can see the chapters in my iPhone though. Strange.

    Anyway, thanks for such a wonderful mix!

    I also have to admit that this compilation was very peaceful and relaxing (even more than the side b of the volume five). When listening it I feel like there is no trouble and my life is bright. Thanks for the compilation and your time spent on that project.

    I love this mix! Not surprisingly, the music makes me feel the same way I do when I’m looking at your photos. I can’t wait for more!

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
