I was cleaning up my hard drive and sorting through some files when I came across a mix I did back in September 2007, gave it a listen and I thought it was pretty solid. Just when you thought only Tupac and Biggie were the only ones coming out with lost albums, Parkdale Funk surprises you! Unfortunately I do not have a play list for the show, but if anyone needs to know a track let me know and I can ID a tune or two for you.So here it is, the lost episode!www.parkdalefunk.com
