DJ recommended tracks

I really like features like The Guardian's "Harangue the DJ" and Slog's "Spun Out" where DJs are asked for a short selection of tracks that they recommend. Unfortunately, these are the only two features of this kind that I know about. What are some more? All genres welcome.

Late Night Tales maybe

The (sadly defunct, but archived online) Dinner Party Download has a segment in each episode where they ask a musician to list songs they would play during a dinner party, including one of their own.

There are probably more of these in audio form than there are in text.

The Fabric mixes are along the same lines as Late Night Tales--a series of mixes curated by an assortment of artists and DJs, mostly electronic. Resident Advisor also has a podcast that's basically a series of DJ mixes.

Defunct but still enjoyable, the series Back to Mine was CDs of the music that specific DJs would play for themselves.

Not exactly what you're looking for, but you may like Pitchfork's 5-10-15-20 feature in which musicians pick songs that represents different times of their lives over 5 year increments.
