Another banner year for some absolutely stunning space rock, psychedelic and experiMENTAL musix! And I got SIX HOURS of it for you! That, my friends, qualifies as a shit ton of space rock. 

This is the first installment - the remaining three hours will be broadcast to you in February. And there's a very good chance this site will go on indefinite hiatus after that. Yeah, boo hoo. Suck it up and put on your big kid headphones, spacerockers. I know I've been saying this for a while, but, you see, the problem isn't SPACE, it's TIME. Go ahead, talk me down.

But don't forget, you also have the option of spacerock to go:

1. Click on the Divshare logo instead of pushing the play button in the player above.

2. Click "download" when redirected to the Divshare site (put it on your desktop for easy access).

3. Once downloaded, drag it to yer iTunes and sync it with yer pod.

And I must reiterate, this is the way to take your spacerock mix to go! You can DOWNLOAD it! It's YOURS now! It's an mp3 mix that pops right into your iTunes - it couldn't be simpler.
