MEMORY TAPES - 9TH APRIL 2010

Post categories:

Jon Teamlaverne Jon Teamlaverne | 15:23 UK time, Thursday, 8 April 2010

In honour of Adam Buxton's new Sunday show 'Adam Buxton's Big Mixtape', TeamLaverne invited the man himself to take part in this week's Memory Tapes.

 

For those who don't know, each week Memory Tapes celebrates a listener's compilation album; either one made by them, or for them. Some album artwork is always nice too.

 

Adam writes... "Here's a picture of me with the first CD compilation I made for my wife in 1997. The cover featured pictures of things we enjoyed as a couple around then (mainly booze, cigs, watching TV and eating eggs apparently) as well as other objects of sentimental value (I was making The Adam & Joe Show at the time hence the teddies)."

 

Here is said picture:

Changes - Bowie

Lord Only Knows - Beck

Who Loves The Sun - Velvets

    Hi Lauren,

    I've never made a mixtape for anyone before, but this feature gave me an idea.

    For my mothers 60th birthday I arranged a surprise party and the music played was every song that has been number one on her birthday since the day she was born.

    So my mixtape is the number ones of the 5th April 1950 to 2010. That's 61 songs and I found every one of them.

    Paul
