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.
