42:11 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I will be presenting the audio of a cassette tape from my collection. It’s a way to help motivate me to digitize more of my archives.

I set up my home studio that would become The Overnightscape Studio a full year before I started The Overnightscape. This is the first test, with my Shure 55SH microphone, Joemeek channel strip, and Behringer mixer. After the brief test, I record on my NYC commute with a Walkman recorder.
