36:50 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape from my collection. It’s a way to help motivate me to digitize more of my archives.

I made this tape driving home in the middle of the night after one of the NAVA video game collectors meetings at Video Game Connections in Howell, NJ. I recorded “Classictronica: Arcade Memories (3/2/02)” at that meeting (available in Onsug). On the drive, I’m talking my ideas for “Obliviana Wander Radio”, an early concept of what would eventually become Onsug. A lot of my ideas here are based on technological limitations in 2002 that no longer exist.
