This week's guest for Memory Tapes is Stuart Fletcher, who writes...


"I was home for Christmas and rooting through old boxes under my old bed at my Mom and Dad's house and found some wonderful compilations made for me in 1997, one from my best friend at the time for my birthday and the second by the girl I was seeing who lived miles away in Doncaster (I was in Birmingham).


"I was blown away by the effort put in to making these things look so good.


"The tape 'Born to Entertain' was a birthday present from Peter Green, singer of The Sweet Nothings who Lammo played a few times last year. We used to be in the Regulars together who were great wee band but we got nowhere. I haven't seen him in three or four years but we still talk on the phone, mainly about music, West Bromwich Albion and Grimsby Town."
