Radio Free Burrito Mixtape: If This Be Sin

wil, · Categories: Music

Another mixtape, combining lots of weird and random files I have accumulated over the years, and keep in a folder that’s called “weird and random audio”.

Includes: Telly Savalas being really 70s, some random preacher who is really into UFOs, Asian covers of popular tunes, surf tunes, early punk, Shatner’s balls, Hitchcock, and something that’s Incredible, but True.

I did this more or less live, choosing tracks as I came across them, and adding them to the mix in order, with minimal editing.

This mixtape is 58m22s long and is here as a 31.6MB VBR MP3 or a 49.1MB OGG file.

Radio Free Burrito Episode 46 – it makes a terrifying sound.

wil, · Categories: Film, Music, Television

Hey nerds! It’s time for a new Radio Free Burrito! This show features a whole lot of me talking about how weird I feel, how afraid I am of falling into obscurity, and wondering what, if anything, I can do about it. There’s also a little bit of music, and a couple of radio spots for some 70s movies.


This episode is 59m04s long and weighs in at 62.1MB

Not Radio Free Burrito – The Space Pirates Mixtape

wil, · Categories: Music

I needed a creative project to decompress between writing assignments, so I made a mixtape. It’s mostly rarities and weird out of print stuff that’s come into my world over the last couple of years, some psychobilly, 70s porn soundtracks, 80s punk, surf music, a couple of weird covers. I also snuck in a track from my friends, Uke Box Heroes. Mixed into the whole thing is a track I found from an old kiddie record in which a rocketship has to attack space pirates and everything goes to shit. It’s terrible on its own, but I think it almost works as a piece of strange art when it’s spread out in little pieces like this, broken up by the music.

This mixtape is 37.9MB and is 53:31 long. Don’t think that I didn’t seriously consider taking an extra four seconds onto the end of it for palindrome purposes.

Not Radio Free Burrito 43a: This one ends abruptly

wil, · Categories: Music, Television


This is a very brief recording, with a little bit of music, and nothing particularly interesting (ding!) otherwise. In fact, you shouldn’t even listen to this one.

Radio Free Burrito doesn’t work as hard to earn its [EXPLICIT] tag as Memories of the Futurecast did, but it still manages to upset mom and get Twitter breakup messages from sensitive people. You have been warned.
