Misson Mix

Many readers commented on the music selections featured in Permafrost. So for Mission, author Peter Robertson provided a track listing of the stuff Tom is listening to this time out. Says Peter, “I’ve only included the songs and artists he mentions by name, and I’ve listed them in chronological order, that is, as they appear in the book. If I say so myself, it’s a solid mix tape.”
