On Tax Day, April 15, this reporter's new personal hero, Doug Hughes, landed a one-man ultralight helicopter on the lawn of the U.S. capitol. But he wasn't any ordinary Doug Hughes; he was an actual mailman who had come bearing mail for all members of Congress, letters in protest of the influence of money in politics. If that's not brassy enough to deserve a mixtape, then we don't know what is. So here it is Doug: a collection of songs about the mail, letters, and the postman, everything from The Marvelettes to 2Pac. To deepen the theme, it starts with "Letters From the Sky," by Civil Twilight, and ends with "Letters to the President," by Hawk Nelson.
