Tape Land 141 – Day of Attempts (9/2/10)

1:05:07 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape or historic material from my personal archives.

Thursday, September 2, 2010, a day where I tried to record a lot of stuff but nothing seemed to work. Starting at 9:36 AM walking to work from the Port Authority Bus Terminal over to Third Avenue, I started Frank Nora Show 1560, but I decided to dump the recording because I wasn’t feeling it. At lunchtime (or after work), I recorded a Moodbruck segment – my series of personal audio notes on my projects. After work, on the walk back to the bus station, I tried again to record Frank Nora Show 1560, but again I wasn’t feeling it. Later at home, I try and record a new experimental show called Cybernightcast, but this, as well, doesn’t feel right. At 10:30 PM I end the day of failed recordings.

I saved all these recording to a hard drive, and discovered them in December 2021. Listening to the whole day of failed recordings is quite interesting. Note that I did finally get it right the next day with Frank Nora Show 1560 – Oppressive Weather (9/3/10) – where I covered a lot of the same topics. And two days later I used the same sequence of audio from Cybernightcast on Macho Condor #1 (9/4/10) 1:19:54 [221].
