MEMORY TAPES: 8TH APRIL 2011
It's definitely a tape of two halves from this week's submission which was kindly submitted by Jeni Cook who goes back to the late 80s for this C90 compilation, although you wouldn't perhaps have gathered that from the tracks)
"This tape was made for me by my friend Gabriella Palmano. It was 1987 and I was having a little party for my daughter Hollie who was a year old on January 1st and Gab's was on the 2nd. Mine was coming up on the 12th so we partied to this. I played this to death on my 'cassette pet' Walkman and can't believe it's still going strong to this day 24 years on. All the tracks have stood the test of time!
I'm sensing that there was possibly a bit of side flipping going on to break up the mood on occasion. Not sure if Malcolm McClaren would have been happy on the B-side...
Nice handwriting too.
