This week's Memory Tapes come from Adam Taylor in Soho, and he says: “My memory mix tape stems from my University days, which seem so recent, yet now appear to be so far away. My mate, Rob, and I would often drive over to Manchester to see our friend Tom to what were drink-filled, unhealthy yet brilliant weekends.
Our journeys in the car were always pre-planned with mix tapes to hopefully raise the tempo before our weekend officially begun.
Rob is currently teaching English in South Korea and recently sent me over a list with one of our eclectic arrangements, which I can only wish to share.
The music and the memories remain recent (with a few oldies), yet to look at the list now, it only brings back fond memories”:
