10:00 – 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.

This was a mysterious tape – “Computron Cassette – Low Noise – High Output” – with an “X” written on one side and an “I” on the other. On it, I discovered this previously unknown ten minute recording, “The Frank Nora Show”, from December 3, 1983. We were waiting to watch Michael Jackson’s Thriller on MTV, which had premiered the day before. This is an amazing time capsule from 1983, being heard for the first time here in 2019. Notes: Frank, Laura, Julie, Men Without Hats, Chris, special announcement, another Chris, Michael Jackson, another room, John, MTV, Thriller.
