Tape Land 106 – GE C-30 Answering Machine Tape (circa 1990s)

11:50 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape or historic recording from my collection. It’s a way to help motivate me to release more of my archives.

Inspired by “The Audio Kitchen” (a show on WFMU), I spent a few years (around 2001) buying used answering machines with cassettes in them, at flea markets and thrift shops, hoping to find interesting audio for my Internet radio project, Bluffcosm.

This tape in unlabeled, but I probably got it around 2000-2001, and the recordings are most likely from sometime in the 1990s. I bleeped out phone numbers and last names.

Notes: Deals in the hopper, managerial promotion, leaky roof, grab a bite to eat, shoot for 7:30, perfecto, backyard was flooded, what time’s your flight, Sandy sent me an electronic card, wild weekend, The Hills, thanks for being a friend, Long Branch Half Marathon, Interfaith Hospitality Network, orgy of food, keep it under your hat, busy organizing, still a bit drunk, worst taxi driver, how’s your new job going.
