This week's mix for Memory Tapes comes from Mark Potten. He told us he still has a number of tapes that he and friends created back in the eighties. 

Mark says "We had a few vans, and would leave the Cotswolds to seek fun and adventure elsewhere." They created the ‘Now That’s What I Call a Van’ tape collection. He still has a number of these, made with his group of friends; Hans, Bod, Geza, Bomber, Smurf, Dirty, Brian the Snail et al.


The tape selected is entitled ‘Bubbling Under’ (a 90 minute mix-tape).
