TONIGHT: New Episode of Mix Tape Memories - A tape recorded from the radio c. 1981

On this episode of Mix tape Memories, we are placing in the deck a 60 minute tape creatively entitled "Tape 1." When I was in Junior High, I sat for hours in front of the radio waiting for songs to come on and quickly hitting the "record" button to get the songs I wanted.  I think nearly everyone who grew up in that era knows what I am talking about, right?

This was the first of many tapes I made that way. I even kept a notebook, listing every song for each tape. Sometimes, I was even able to capture clips of DJs, too. On this tape, you'll hear Brant Miller, who was a DJ on WLS in Chicago. Today, he is a weatherman.

This episode of Mix Tape Memories premieres TONIGHT at 8pm, Central and repeats next Wednesday at 1pm.

Visit Mixcloud for the episodes on-demand. Each episode is placed on Mixcloud a week after they air.

S1E1: "A Rainy Evening, Sipping Coffee in Front of a Fire..."

On this premiere episode of Mixtape Memories, we have a tape in the deck from c. 1991. It is called "A Rainy Evening Sipping Coffee in Front of a Fire." Yes, a little pretentious, I know. 

This mix is unique in that it has couplets of songs by the same artists, and occasional excerpts of rain and thunder from one of those old Environments albums that captured natural sounds. Remember those albums?

This mix also has a range of songs from various decades. From the Guess Who to Everything But the Girl, from Kate Bush to Sting, this album has an eclectic mix, perfect for sipping coffee on a rainy evening in front of a fire.

New episodes of Mixtape Memories can be heard on Friday evenings, 8 pm Central. The episode will be repeated on Wednesday at 1 pm Central.
