âSay my name; say my nameâ, as the prophecy of Destiny's Child once foretold; For this is the basis of this weeks Mixtape from the 405. All of the tracks chosen consist of a name in the title - bar Join The Dots byÂ Tim And Sam's Tim And The Sam Band With Tim and Sam, which I allowed due to the ridiculous amount of peoples names in their own name. Perhaps a tenuous link for choosing a Mixtape but a surprisingly tough one to finish given the plethora of name related songs. Here... (continued) [read more]
