This week's Memory Tape comes from Rachel Henderson, who writes...
"Back in the late 80s my friend Hugh did me a mixed tape of songs he liked, that he called 'Now that's what I call wimpy'. Being rather forthright at times, I had scathingly referred to his foppish liking for bands like Prefab Sprout & Steely Dan as wimpy."
"It still looks a wimpy list to me, but it's also a reflection of his very good musical ear, and has some tunes that I now love, so thank you Hugh!"
