This week on Mix Tape Memories ...

We are going Lo-Fi this week on Mix Tape Memories, for a tape that is barely holding together.  I recorded this tape in 1981 from Chicago radio. I was able to get one last play from it. And it still has some great music, which includes two songs from legendary Chicago DJ, Steve Dahl.

Steve Dahl came to Chicago in the late 70s and quickly made a name for himself with his on-air sidekick, Garry Meier. In 1981, the duo had a show on WLS FM, 94.7.  Dahl, and his band Teenage Radiation, recorded several parody songs at the time, much like Weird Al would later make famous. Two of those songs appear on this mix tape!

Other artists include Bryan Adams, Shooting Star, Go-Gos, Aerosmith,  Climax Blues Band, Billy Joel, Journey and Survivor.

Listen to Mix Tape Memories on Friday nights, at 8 pm central.

This episode repeats at 1am and 1pm next Wednesday.

Past episodes can be heard via Mixcloud.
