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…
