BPT Mixtape #12 – Bill’s Strange Town

Bill, music-doer, musician, and regular contributor to the BPT blog, sent me this playlist a few months ago and I’m finally getting it up and live. He’s got some great stuff on here – a little Tom Waits, a little Leonard Cohen, some classic punk with Crass and Agent Orange and even a little Tennessee Ernie Ford (dig the 60’s go-go version of “Sixteen Tons”).

There’s something on here for everyone and I hope it gets your week started right.
