20:00 – 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 August 2001 I drove down to Baltimore to see a college friend. This short tape mostly documents the drive down, though there’s a little on the way back. Whenever I hear this tape, I think about how it was less than 3 weeks before 9/11… how I had no idea it was coming…

I did keep in touch with my friend from time to time after the visit, but sadly, she passed away in 2012.

55:51 – 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.

Here’s a very special tape from my childhood, which contains my earliest recordings. Labeled “OLD”, I dubbed the tape in the 1980’s to a new cassette to make sure it was preserved. This recording is taken from the dub.

Side 1 is from September 15-16, 1969, a few weeks before my 2nd birthday. This is my first recording, as far as I can tell. My parents interview me and give me a bath. I may have played parts of this on Onsug before, but this is the first time it’s being presented in its entirety.

Side 2 contains several sections. The first part is my father interviewing me, on 11/16/69 and then 2/22/70. In the 1970 section, I talk a lot about Sesame Street, which had premiered just 3 months earlier. I previously released this section as Cut and Shoot. The next part is from 11/24/73, when I’m 6. My brother, age 3, is also on the tape. I previously released this part as Tornado Warning. The final section, which may be from that same day, or at least within the next few weeks, has me recording and talking alone and also talking to my brothers. I released part of this section as Bad Hole, but much of this section was previously unreleased.

1:07:19 – 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.

Here’s a full episode of my college radio show with Mad Mike, Anything But Monday. It was a fill-in show, from 9 to 11 AM on Thursday, October 15, 1987. I had transferred to NYU at this point, and I had to take the last train to NJ the night before to be there for the show. Like a lot of other ABM tapes, some bits and pieces from this recording have been heard on Onsug before, but the entire show is being heard here for the first time since it aired nearly 30 years ago.

The word of the day is “coolant”.
