#1425 Mixed Tape Memoirs Live at EWF


This episode is about that song.  You know the one. You hear it, and no matter where you are, or who you’re with, you’re transported to a time when you were so in love that you seemed drunk. The song you know that still makes you feel like a lovesick teenager every time you hear it.

‘Mixed Tape Memoirs: Love and Lust’ was an event hosted by The Lifted Brow at the Emerging Writers’ Festival, where they asked writers to tell a true story about their life based on a song. This week on All the Best we share some with you – they’re adorable, heartbreaking, sexy, and sometimes a bit porn-y or gross. Just like love.
