Here at TeamLaverne Towers we love Memory Tapes; if you're a newbie to the show, then here's how it works....


Every Friday a listener puts forward a compliation tape or CD made for them or by them. We publish the artwork and tracklistings and then pick 5 tracks to play on the show.


This week's comes from Andrew in Edinburg who writes... "this compilation CD helped to celebrate me and my now Civil Partner, Keith's, wedding on Easter 2002. We got fed up waiting for the law to be changed, and were surprised when it did a few years later.


All our families, nephews, nieces and friends were there and it was a very Scottish doo with kilts worn by the men and some women too! We still regard it to be more improtant than the day we signed at the registry office..


We had 150 guests all day and night, each one getting the wedding cd. It is fairly ecclectic and has something for everyone. There is a bit of a French theme as they were the special songs, but many more were the trademark of the dj we had at the reception, our pal, Trendy Wendy, who really got the crowd going. She also designed the artwork."


Said artwork looks like this...
