The website was started when Ian was 1146 miles away from home. The distance serves a metaphor for the journey of life and the music featured here is the soundtrack for that journey. It is new music and old favorites. You may be further or closer than a thousand miles from home, may have different ideas about what home entails, and may like different genres of music, but we all share some collective sense of joy when we find things we like–especially music. Here is where we capture a little of that joy, feature some of that music, and find our way to the place we call home.

1146 miles has been blessed with contributions from others as well. Without them, the site would not be nearly as good.
