We've all made them, and now we celebrate them... Lauren wants to know about the compliation tapes and CDs your friends, lovers and exs have made for you, and the ones you've made for them.


Dig one out, take a photo of it, scribble the tracklisting in an email along with your contact details and email it to Lauren. A bit of a back story about the compilation would be nice too; when you got it, who you made it for, whether you discovered some amazing new music as a result...


Then, Lauren picks five songs and plays them all on a Friday, exciting eh?!


This week's Memory Tape comes from Jamie McKay from Haynes, who writes: "I got this much loved and played tape from a student teacher years ago - we'd had a rather lovely few days and nights together, and then she went travelling and we lost touch. A lovely memory kept afloat by this tape as I plunge headlong into middle-aged respectability and dad-dancing.


"Nevermind though, I'm now a deliriously happily married chap, with a beautiful baby son who seems to be developing a taste in music beyond stadium anthems like 'Yes my name is Iggle-Piggle', thank god. He was joyously hopping around to the one of Longpigs' more sombre numbers the other day, the little weirdo. Good job I love him to bits."
