Share your story...

Want to contribute your story of a significant song to our My Mix Tape series? Record it and send it to us! Here's how:

  • If you have an iPhone, follow these easy instructions.
  • If you don't have an iPhone, use your laptop's built-in microphone to record your story. If you don't know how this works on your laptop, google it!

When you're done recording, send your audio file to

We'll receive your submission and take care of all the rest!

Before recording, prepare your story. Think of a song and what you’d like to say about it. Do you have a particular memory associated with your song? Whenever you hear your song, does it transport you back to a specific time or place?

When you're ready, start recording! Please begin by telling us your full name (first and last name), where you live, and the title and artist of your song. Then tell your story in under a minute.

We will try to air all of the submissions, but keep in mind we have limited air space for them.
