Well I have a blocked ear should probably take it easy, but enjoying this...
Is anyone familiar with the 6 Million Steps website?
It's a great archive of disco, boogie, funk, reggae etc with some excellently curated themed mixes. They really know their music history.
The Timelines mixes are brilliant - remember the BBC's The Rock n Roll Years, which interspersed pop and rock hits of the day with news footage? - it's like that in mix format. Thoroughly recommended:

Which Mixcloud downloader would you recommend? Have tried offliberty but the MP3 quality is awful.
the Chrome add-on I have is called merely 'Mixcloud Downloader'
Cheers! I'll give that a google
Can someone tell me how to create a mixcloud mix...I take it I can't just compile tracks from Spotify and add to mixcloud...do I need some other software?
you need to record the mix as an mp3 and upload it.
if you're not going to do any actual mixing, you could alway just make a Spotify playlist and make it public
Right. But Spotify 'mixes' or playlists will only feature on Spotify won't they?
yeah, but you could record the playlist using something like Audacity (I've used this programmes to upload old mixtapes)
