24:49 – 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.

A tape just labeled “W”, from my childhood. This was the kind of tape that would be used over and over again, with various layers bleeding through. It starts with data saves from my home computer, which would have to be from 1981 at the earliest, but other parts of the tape seem to be older, possibly from the late 1970s.

Notes: (0:00) TI-99/4A data saved to audio cassette, (3:34) weird musical tones, (4:05) fan sound, (4:38) tongue clicking horse sound effects and whistling, (5:33) more TI-99/4A, (6:27) Frank’s time travel story, (15:10) TV (speed corrected), (16:02) classical music (edited), (18:47) TV, (18:55) Ronald McDonald has been fired, (19:28) songs (edited), (21:19) The Hobbit (edited).

1:30:26 – 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.

It’s a Sunday afternoon in April 1990, and Frank and Peter, both in their early 20s at the time, go on a “zonal adventure” drive and record an audio letter to their friend Bryan, who is currently living in Michigan. The tape is very crude and toxic at times, and was actually never sent to Bryan, nor heard by anyone else, till today. Only a few snippets were used as part of the “Train Crap & Blood” theme song the following year.

48:07 – 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.

In 1987, at age 19, I set up a rudimentary recording studio in my parents’ basement. I created six “albums” of music as “Little Frankie Nora”: Die!, The Good War, Demolition Curve, Original Tin, How Do You Feel About the Job?, and Ending the Era with Calm Music. I compiled the best of these to create two official cassette releases: Welcome to the Weasel Village Mall and Bicentennial Cane, which had very limited distribution. These two have been released on the Onsug Archive.

However, the individual “albums” have never been released. So I’m starting with the sixth and last one – “Ending the Era with Calm Music”, which I remember as having a very unique sound. The main instruments I used were a Casio SK-1 sampling keyboard and a small black-and-white TV.

The first 14 song titles are from a paragraph in a book I had at the time, though I can’t remember the title. “The Dharma Bums” comes to mind, but I don’t think that was it.

Also, at 45:37, there’s a 74 second clip from a TV show, including the phrase “some silly, some not” – solving a mystery I talked about on The Overnightscape 1349: The Nineteenth Adventure (12/20/16). However, I have no idea what TV show the quote is from… does anyone know what show it could be? “The Old Curiosity Shop” comes to mind, it sounds like some kind of educational show, but that’s not it – what we’re looking for has a character named Rodney.
