"In light of the recent death of Bowie, I found this mix incredibly easy to do. Other than the love you get from your nearest and dearest, your families, you friends, nothing compares to the love that music creates. The initial connection with a song or an artist, that quite simply talks to you. Whether its goosebumps, or just the beginnings of a life long fascination.
Losing people that have made some kind of impact in your life is very hard thing to deal with. When its a personal loss, you can contain it to photographs, and sharing memories with families and friends. You can contain the grief within reason. When the loss is someone that was some kind of public figure, the legacy is there constantly, to remind you. When Kenny Hawkes died, I found this to be the hardest thing. But eventually it became the most amazing thing.
I am so happy that there are more than just memories, there is music - music that reached people other than those immediately around you. It has taught me to value the little things, and it has taught me to love more, and to hopefully be a better person.
Love is, and will always be the message- and with that in mind - here is some love - with a message."
