We all have our dance mixes from friends stacked to our ceilings so instead of posting a mix of music to listen to while your getting ready to go out tonight I have dug up this mix by a good friend named Rob Theakston that made a mix for people to listen to for the morning after the rowdiness or New Year’s day. The beginning of Lee Ritenour’s “Is It You” is pure gold, definitely worth letting that song ride out. I’m sure i’ll be playing this tomorrow morning after tonight’s Warp 20 year party that i’m heading to now.

Made this mix the other night, just a bunch of yachtness to help you get back into the swing of life…” – Rob Theakston

Ha. Bobby Caldwell was one of the first concerts I went to. I think before that concert, I saw Joe Satriani. And before that I saw Donny Osmond playing in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

That’s one of the better photos I’ve seen of Mr Theakston. Seriously, is there anyone that doesn’t know this guy?

Thanks for posting this. I had totally forgotten about it.

Rob and I aspired to be the white PM Dawn in the early 00’s.

A dream deferred, but this photo shows our true ambition.
