Valentine’s Day can be a tricky day.
If you remember it, but that special someone in your life doesn’t, there can be hell to pay.
If you spend the big bucks on flowers, chocolate, etc., etc. and your special someone didn’t want you to break the budget, you feel like a dolt.
Is it too soon in the relationship to make a big deal about the day? Does it send the wrong message? Or if you go low key, do you come across as uncaring?
For me, the never fail answer to the day is – you guessed it – the gift of music.
So this year’s Straight No Chaser Valentine’s Day Mix comes with a first ever CD insert, so you can download the uninterrupted musical Podcast, burn it to CD, cut out the insert, fit it into one of those now old fashioned jewel cases, wrap it up, and go from there.
Never let it be said I didn’t try to help you out. Or warn you.
