Every mixed tape has a song at its’ heart from which the mix sprang.  A song that made me want to make a tape. For this mixed tape it was Don Ho’s Tiny Bubbles. Every other song here should know that its’ job was to simply lead up to, or away from, Tiny Bubbles.

In honour of Tiny Bubbles and the important role it played in the making of this Summer Cassette I will provide (courtesy Wikipedia) 3 Important Facts About Don Ho after the track listings below.be1be2.jpg3 Important Facts About Don Ho
