Podcast 43 - Thai Hostel

Hello all,

I hope everyone is doing well as the holidays approach.  I'm excited to finally get this podcast done and out to ya'll.  The inspiration for this mix came from a conversation I was having with a cousin-in-law of mine, Mark, who runs a hostel in Chaing Mai, Thailand.  If you ever have the chance to go to Chaing Mai or Thailand in general I highly recommend it, for so many reasons, not least of which is the food!  And if you happen to be in need of a hostel, might I recommend the Chok Dee Guesthouse (chokdeegh.com)?  Anyway, enough with the sales pitch.  We were talking about the music that get's played at hostels and how tired we are of hearing that one damn Bob Marley album on repeat.  Now I've been all over the world and stayed in pretty much every type of accommodation you can imagine, from refugee camp to five star resorts so I felt like I should be able to offer up some suggestions on what music travelers might like to hear hence this podcast.  Feel free to share your picks by email or on the Facebook page.

Thanks for listening and don't forget to support the artists,
