BBC Radio 6 Music

This weeks' Memory Tapes come from Emma Robinson, who risides and that there Australia. She says: “My friend Anna was on the show a few weeks back with the first volume of our Action Women tapes - she said you guys enjoyed it so much that you might be interested in sampling another vintage, so here is the track listing for Action Women volume 4!


"Fast forward a few years to a point where me might actually be legally old enough to be doing interpretive dances in our local indie discos, only to find that we still are. You know the story of how these tapes came into being so I don't need to retell it - but I will tell you that I sat in my house in Australia crying happy tears listening to Anna on the internet, and then danced around laughing like a giddy fool to the whole of the moon. Funny how music can so instantly transport you to a very specific place in your life.


"I have two young daughters (3 years, and 3 months) and I have so many hopes for their lives, but one of my biggest is that when they are in their thirties they can talk to the friends of their teenage years and share memories and music like this. The world seems a scary place to be young these days but if they have friendships like these I know they will be safe.


Anyway.....on to the music!"
