Have you ever had a conversation when you just knew what the other person was about to say? Not like a déjà vu, just a…synchronicity. A crossroads in time and space, intersecting with a very specific subsection of music fandom. I experienced that tonight with Tim Durling, but you will have to watch this episode yourself to hear the stories. Keywords: “Soundtrack to the Video Historia“.
Tim has just written what could be the very first book dedicated to the subject of 8-track tapes. You can support Tim’s project by clicking here! As a collector, he has sought to determine what exactly has been released on the format and what has not. There are a lot of unknowns in this little-documented realm, but what you will find in his book is only information that is 100% verified. If he wasn’t satisfied that something was released, it didn’t go in the book.
I can’t wait to get my copy of Unspooled, and you have until October 23 to kickstart it. The colour photographs of these tapes are sure to melt your eyeballs. But before that happens…watch the show below! Thanks again to Tim for stopping by. And thanks to Aaron for co-hosting!
