All Mixed Up is an eclectic mix of arts and information, featuring mood-driven music mixes and interviews with figures from the worlds of literature, film, television, theater, and the visual arts.

"As the 'Strange Albanian Genius' presiding over All Mixed Up, Peter Bochan plays eccentric pop, exotica, ambient, country, novelty records, basically any genre that strikes his fancy...'he confuses boundries'. At its best All Mixed Up is a non-linear tapestry that is a perfect counterpoint to an often dehumanizing morning."
