Got 4 hours? Here’s some music

A while back I asked my Facebook and Twitter friends to suggest songs over 8 minutes in length for a mix. And I got a ton of great suggestions in by far the longest Facebook comment thread that has ever appeared on my timeline. Then I largely ignored them all and put together this mix…
