Very much like the vanilla-and-chocolate frozen yogurt swirl, when a dj combines two different records together to make a new tune, that's a mashup. Sometimes the results are horrible, like peanut butter and fish, sometimes the results are beautiful, like The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again" with the Beastie Boys "Body Movin'" (sped up really fast).

Because Indie 103 rules, they've given DJ Paul V. the "Mashup Of The Day" feature and his own Friday afternoon "Smash Mix" at 5:30pm to spin the latest mashups for the people.

On Saturday Bootie LA celebrates their one-year anniversary and DJ Paul V. was good enough to provide some answers about this whole mashup thing.
