Tape Land 43 – Anything But Monday (10/27/86)

1:04:46 – 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 another episode on my college radio show “Anything But Monday”, with co-host Mad Mike.

This one is very special – as long as I can remember, there was something wrong with this particular tape, and it couldn’t be played. Today, February 3, 2018, I broke open the cassette and transferred the tape to a new cassette housing – and I was able to hear it, perhaps for the first time since it was recorded over 30 years ago.

Notes: Starting the show, the rip in time, the cart machine’s busted, The Mailman’s Nightmare, the station want to go to 100 watts, Kaboom PSA, virgins, Drew Security PSA, Halloween costume contest, Anything But Monday Magazine #3, Public Transit PSA, The Mets, Tolley Pit bathroom, dying fly, Israel Kat & Matzoh Mouse vs. Shalom Gnome, supermarkets, the new secret mystery, Progressive Music, Blind Welder PSA, We Are The World backwards, anti-apartheid demonstrators, gross-out question, random phone calls, (some tape speed problems at this point), TV game shows, The Gong Show, Match Game, Wheel of Fortune, House Bat Management PSA, cable radio, freedom of speech, France, bag ladies, beggars, quadmates, putting the clock back on the wall, Gilligan’s Island, Stephen Wright, Jonathan Round “In Quest of the Unicorn”, end of the show.

  1. I’m glad you were able to salvage this – some fun improvised stuff here.

  2. “Mike… why did you call that number?”

    “It’s the first one that popped into my head.”

    “It’s our phone number, Mike.”

    😝 Classic.
