We've all made them, and now we celebrate them... Lauren wants to know about the compliation tapes and CDs your friends, lovers and exs have made for you, and the ones you've made for them.


Dig one out, take a photo of it, scribble the tracklisting in an email along with your contact details and email it to Lauren. A bit of a back story about the compilation would be nice too; when you got it, who you made it for, whether you discovered some amazing new music as a result...


Then, Lauren picks five songs and plays them all on a Friday, exciting eh?!


This week's Memory Tape comes from Sally Mcintosh who writes..."Hi Lauren, this is a mix tape I made in 1995 for a new boyfriend, I kept a copy as it took so long to make. I still love to listen to it. The art work is taken from a postcard from an art students degree show." Said art work looks like this:




And the tracklisting is...
