Listening to Lauren Laverne on 6 this morning (whilst ‘attempting’ to write up a client report) she was asking listeners to send in their memory music tape lists. Anyone remember making tapes? Sitting there trying to hit record at the right moment during the Top 40 on a Sunday night – and cursing the DJ’s that talked over the beginning and end of songs!!
I had STACKS of cassettes, and a very precious double tape recorder that went back and forth between school and home in Dar es Salaam, over the years they’ve disappeared, and I no longer even own a machine to play them, I don’t even own a CD player anymore. Apple has taken over my life 😦
I going to spend this evening plotting my life via the music I loved over the years – should be interesting, not to mention probably embarrassing – I’ve loved some dodgy songs in my time. I’ll put them up on the blog in the next few days.
