Your Memory Tape this week comes from Robin Mann who's a boy who made a mix for a girl. Classic.


"I made this mix about three years ago now for my then girlfriend Rosie. We split up at the beginning of last year.


"Most of those tracks that feature are still what I listen to these days. I'm a Tom Waits obsessive so Rosie had to feature, and Blue Valentine is my all-time favourite record.


"Also, a few of the other artists (Dalton, Mimms) I came across whilst we were together. I guess they're all tracks that summed me up at the time."
