ESSENTIAL MIX (by Greg Wilson for BBC Radio 1)

O.K., admitted - this isn't really "news" per say, as the mix I'm referring to in this posting has been online almost one and three-quarters of a year!

Furthermore, I wasn't aware that (the almost-legendary) Greg Wilson has been so kind to UL this set without voiceovers and jingles,a year AFTER it's original broadcast on Radio 1 the 17/01/09!

In any event, this set has been deemed being the best "Essential Mix" ever - and with it's 2 hours-worth of superb music & mixing, it's definitely worth writing about regardless, IMHO!
