Mixtape: Tricking grandma into listening to the Clash

Tricking grandma into listening to the Clash
I started making mix CDs for my grandma on her birthday.  The first one had Perry Como every other track, and some traditional Irish folk songs, and some Tony Bennett.  But she asked for more music, and I thought I’d get her up to speed on what the kids are into these days.  Maybe if the progression is gentle, she’ll listen to the Clash without even realizing it.
Mix cover is of videographer Phyllis Rodan, and comes from lovolution. She’s not my grandma.
