Monthly Mixtape – December 2021

Here is the Monthly Mixtape for December, which will also be my final Monthly Mixtape.  In 2022, I plan to revert to a “Song of the Week” format with a new approach that I hope will make it entertaining and informative while not too much work for me.  Until then, enjoy!  And let me know what you’re listening too!
