This week's Memory Tape comes from a Uni in the 80s. Sarah Howerd sent it in, who writes:


"This tape was made for me whilst studying Graphic Design at art college in Reading (Berkshire College of Art and Design) during the 80's. Of course, being at art college means we used to make our own cassette covers with whatever we had to hand. Remember this was just before computers were used in design so everything was photocopied and stuck together.


"This tape was made by a friend called Glenn Emlyn in June 1987. He was a year or two above me but I think we shared an interest in The Police at the time. I still play this and love the little bits of film/tv excerpts he put in between the songs.


"So hello to all those at BCAD in 1987 and especially Glenn for this enduring memory tape."
