49:04 – 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.

This tape is labeled “ABM Show Cool!”, but doesn’t have any dates written on it. It’s from my college radio show “Anything But Monday”, which I did with Mad Mike.

Side One has one of our earliest episodes – I estimate it to be from March 3, 1986, though it could be the week before or after. It has a lot of prepared skits and jokes, and some of these clips have been released on Onsug before.

Side Two is from September 29, 1986, and has a much different tone. I don’t think any audio of this episode has ever been released before. The Weekly World News figures prominently, which is always good.

1:14:25 – 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.

This is a great example of a cassette tape that was used multiple times and overdubbed, with layer upon layer of audio. I originally dubbed my vinyl copy of the Cosmos soundtrack onto the tape, but then much more stuff was added.

On side one is the long-lost 1984 revival of my parody TV station “Channel 67 WWW”, which I originally did in Montana 1980. I had completely forgotten that this existed. It is quite insane.

On side two, what happened is, my college roommate got drunk and I wasn’t there, but his friends used my tape and my boombox to record him. I didn’t find out about it till later. This was most likely in the Fall of 1985.

For my Internet radio station Bluffcosm in 2000, I released the first few minutes of this as A Hairy One. When I recently digitized the whole tape, I was completely surprised to find that the audio continued on much further… I guess I stopped listening after a period of silence. It’s amazing audio of drunk college students in a dorm in 1985.

Sprinkled throughout are other surprises, such as several radio airchecks and fragments of songs. So much happening on a single tape from over 30 years ago…

28:41 – 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.

More impossibly obscure audio from the archive… this time from over 30 years ago.

I had a college radio show with Mad Mike called Anything But Monday, which began in February 1986, but by April 1986, we were kicked off the air for our on-air antics. Two of our fellow DJs went on the air later that week and “dedicated” their show to us, making some nasty comments about us. I must have known they were planning on talking about us, because I recorded some of the show. I’m glad I did, because it’s fascinating to listen to…

Released March 2017 on The Overnightscape Underground (onsug.com), an Internet talk radio channel focusing on a free-form monologue style, with diverse and very clever hosts presenting unique programs, historic archival material, and nocturnal audio.

31:52 – 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.

Another great find! I played an 8-minute edited version of this on The Overnightscape #55. But the whole thing is well worth listening to (especially Peter playing Shenmue on Dreamcast). I guess back then I wasn’t into the rambling, longform stuff as much.

59:07 – 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.

On this tape I’m in NYC in 2001, and I’m recording just a kind of personal journal. At the time, I wasn’t planning on releasing it. But it’s striking how similar it is to The Overnightscape of today… walking around the Port Authority Bus Terminal and 42nd Street… yet it’s such a different world, 2001… two years before The Overnightscape began…

1:00:54 – 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.

The first tape is “Anything But Monday 10/5/87″ – from my college radio show with Mad Mike.

While a few clips from this tape have been on Onsug before, the majority of it is being heard here for the first time since it was broadcast almost 30 years ago.

Some trivia from this episode… one of our fellow students on the tape, Jennifer Niven, went on to become a successful author. She also visited us on our 2012 reunion show.
