It's that Memory Tapes time of the week wherein one of you lucky listeners gets five tunes played on the show that are taken from a quite brilliant old mixtape/cd/md you either made for someone or had made for you. It's all about celebrating the nostalgia really - not only does the music take you back, each tape tells its own story... This week's tape comes from one Daniel Carroll of Dublin. Submitting his tape, he wrote:


"Here's a memory tape I recently sent to a "lady friend". The oul' Scroobius Pip lyric comes to mind; "Thou shalt not use poetry, art or music to get into girls' underwear. Use it to get into their heads"....probably should have put the song on the tape now that I think of it..."


Fair enough. Here's the mighty tracklisting - haven't heard that Belle & Sebastian tune for an age:


New Order - Temptation

Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five - The Message

Robert Wyatt - Sea Song

Belle & Sebastian - We Rule The School

Jesus & Mary Chain - Just Like Honey

The Walkmen - The Rat

Pulp - Help The Aged

Looper - Impossible Things

Paul Simon - Mother & Child Reunion

Wes Montgomery - I Don't Stand A Ghost Of A Chance Without You

John Lee Hooker - I'm Mad Again

Darlene Love - Wait Till My Bobby Gets Home

Weezer - My Evaline

Dexy's Midnight Runners - Breaking Down The Walls Of Heart Ache

Otis Redding - Satisfaction

New York Dolls - Personality Crisis

John Lennon - My Mummy's Dead


Listen to Friday's show to hear the five tracks Lauren plays from the compilation.
