Episode 109 – Cassettes “Snow & Tell”
It is true when I say that 95% of my cassettes went into a Thunder Bay landfill. Then I misguidedly dumped more when I did some downsizing in 2019. Only recently have I realized that there are diehard collectors (cough cough Tim Durling) out there who want albums on every format, including cassette. They don’t necessarily play them, they just show them off. There are a bunch of tapes I wish I kept for that reason. Helix – Wild in the Streets with glow in the dark cassette. Sammy Hagar self-titled with a weird cover that wrapped around the outside of the tape case. Dozens that I recorded myself, with my own artwork on them. All gone, forever.
Tonight, join John Snow from 2Loud2OldMusic as we gather what remains of our tapes for a truly magnetic “Snow & Tell” show! What we have left is what you will see tonight. A lot of mix tapes, and I hope you enjoy. I know it’ll be fun to dig through these old cassettes. My oldest tapes go back to about 1984. My newest are from 2022. John has small selection to show off as well, so join us tonight for some tapes!
