MEMORY TAPES: 'MUSIC FROM PUBLIC LIBRARIES VOL.5'
Each week on Memory Tapes we celebrate a listener's compilation tape or CD
It can be a tape made for them, or made by them.
We pick five tracks from the compilation and play them between 10.30 and 11 on a Friday.
This week's tape comes from Tristan Cox
Tristan says "I'm not sure this is allowed but I travel across the country compiling mix CD's from music I've taken out of public libraries. I pay the necessary 50p fee, burn them and then bring them back. I don't know how libraries decide what CD's they provide at any one time, but it's quite an eclectic mix, old and new, and at 50p a CD, it's ripe for experimentation. They also have pretty dense jazz and blues sections."
