Mix Tape

The art of the mix tape has been written about ad nauseum, so why not add another bit to the pile? I mean, bologna has a first name and it sure ain’t music compendium. Here’s a tape I found in my car some time ago. It’s dated 3/27/00. Well, here’s a list of the songs. The tape won’t convey onto this electronic blog page, so, well… that’s just logic. This is from whence playlists evolved. Yes, that’s right boys and girls, gather around and you will hear the tales of the days of magnetic tape…

It was recorded on a crappy TDK D90 cassette. I’ve found that the better cassettes are Maxell.
