Tape Land 22 – ABM (circa March 1986)

17:09 – 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 of my college radio show Anything But Monday. This tape has no date written on it, but seems to be from around March 1986. It’s the latter portion of the show – the first part may be on another tape…

Notes: David Van Tieghem, jokes, Sniglets, Weekly World News, baby bigfoot, house bat management PSA, microphone comes off, waiting for Carson, late for class, another radio station bleeds through.

  1. Frank, I was wondering if the Sniglets you presented were originals? Reason I asked is because the books also inspired me to make them up and at one time I had 15-20 but I forgot almost all of them…

  2. Jimbo, those that we read on this show were, I believe, directly from one of the books. However, a few years later, we did our own version, “Giblets”, in our magazine, “words that are in the dictionary but shouldn’t be”, kind of the opposite of Sniglets.

  3. This made me laugh! Thanks, Frank.
