MEMORY TAPES: 13th JANUARY 2012
This weeks Memory Tape comes to you from Steph who is in the process of moving to Oxford. She came across this mix tape when she was clearing out her cupboards.
Steph says; "Around the age of 15 when I was really beginning to develop a passion for music I also began to realise that none of my peers had the faintest idea about anything from Morrissey to The Magnetic Fields and so did I turn to the internet to engage with others I felt more inclined to share my passions, oh how misunderstood we all feel as teenagers! Well through this forum it was decided that a mix cd swap should take place, to share music as the primary aim. But also perhaps to feel that our shared interests and new found friendships could be validated with something more real than text on a screen and to be able to hold an extract of someone else's most treasured set of tunes.
Well here is the one I received, from a boy of course as these things naturally still went. I forgot all about it until my aforementioned clearout and it really is a rather wonderful mix, I hope you think so too."
