The best part about being part of Radio Free Chicago is that my contributors here aren't so much contributors as they are a family of sorts. Take the fact that John Brunner now runs Mezzic and not only have I tossed two reviews his way, but he's now got the lovely Katia Piza on board too. If that's not a perfect example of RFC's family mentality, I don't know what is.
So when one RFC-er goes through heartache, every RFC-er not only sympathizes, but they do what they can to help. And since we obviously all share the same passion for music, what's a better way to fuse together the cracks in your aching heart than with a collection of songs on the subject? Today, Shani assists with my Left With Nothing Left To Lose: Breaking Up Is Hard To Do with Break Up, Drink Up. In Shani's words, "This is a collaborative Radio Free Chicago soundtrack. Listen up. Break Up. Drink up." - Amber Valentine
