This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Tape_Land_Video_300.jpg

3:36:17 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape or historic material from my personal archives.

This episode is part of a sub-project within Tape Land called “Video Phase 2022”. I recently began transferring a ton of old video tapes to digital, and have been posting selections to YouTube. Here, I’ll be releasing the audio tracks of these videos, as well as linking you to the YouTube videos, and The Internet Archive.

The Compleat Weird University (Fall 1986)

In 1986, “Mad” Mike and Frank Nora “Master of the Airwaves”, not satisfied with just doing their comedy radio show “Anything But Monday”, decide to produce a video series based on a fictional version of their college called “Weird University”. With their new personas “Franco Wolfini” and “Iggy Szalzo”, they investigate and report on interesting students, the dining hall, campus security, a nearby supermarket, and much more… plus, strange happenings on a Weird Halloween.

This “Compleat” version includes all the raw footage from the three half-hour episodes of Weird University, plus lost, deleted and bonus scenes.

There are some sections of silence, including 10 seconds at the start. I decided to keep these in the audio version, so that the timestamps below would remain accurate.
