Dear Hexbeat reader,

We think you’re cute. We really wanted to make you a mix tape for Valentine’s Day, but decided it was too risky; what if you didn’t like it? What if you’re still seeing whats-his-face? What if your wife finds out? No, this seemed much safer. Here is what would have been on the Valentine’s Day mix tape our staff made if we woulda had the guts to go through with it. So what do you say: do you like us? Circle yes, no, or maybe.

Yours truly,
Hexbeat

I play records on the radio in Cleveland, and sometimes I host dance parties around town. I like trashy rock'n'roll, kittens, true crime, vintage everything, the Monkees, and starting too many collections. My radio show streams live on wcsbradio.com every Tuesday night.

An Arkansas girl living in Memphis, TN. I love pugs, live music, slasher movies, and absurdity. Send me photos of your favorite hot dogs.

Miss Dear reads too much. Her personal brand is glitter and her favorite accessories are bruises from shows. She is still quite torn up about David Bowie. You can often find her taking pictures of her precious cats or at a dive bar being mediocre at karaoke. She's a PacNW native that loves the South.

Graphic Designer/Drummer/One Half of Rival Colors Photo Massing. I love anything real and raw. Pressing your ear against a light pole and hitting the other side with your fist. I came here to mess around and chew gum..........and I'm all out of gum.

My name is Terry Cloff and I am a 44 year old graphics designer! New to the field but learning fast! For example: "Simplicity". I also get down to good music, long walks and spending quality time with my designs.

Ryan hasn’t asked anyone to write a bio about him so we’ll take submissions for one.

Silly wingnut, Semi-professional Chef...Sound and cute shit captures me...Obsessed with music, addicted to kitsch and quirky things ..Family man but not in the Black Flag sense..
