Stuart Dredge is back with his App reviews for the week...

 

Barefoot Atlas (iPad) This is a beautiful atlas app for iPad that lets you spin a digital globe, zooming in to tap on countries and things (animals, vehicles, landmarks) to find out more about them. Designed for children as much as adults, and optimised for the brand new iPad's ninja screen.

 

Strumify (iPhone / iPad) The latest 'learn to play guitar' app for iPhone and iPad this gets you to play a real guitar, and listens to you using the microphone, giving you feedback as you go. Free, but you pay for extra lessons in-app.

 

Hugmail (iPhone / Android) This app is designed to help you share your phone photos with elderly relatives - it turns them into lovely-looking postcards (with big fonts…) and sends them through the physical post for £1.49 a pop.

Today's Memory Tapes is a Mother's Day special. Debbie Fielding explains....

 

"I heard 'Buffalo Chance' by Neneh Cherry on your show the other week and it for some reason gave me the idea to make a mix CD for my sister, Becky. It will be her 2nd Mother's Day on Sunday, so I thought I'd make a mix for her and my niece, Ava (I'm sure Daddy, Ryan, will listen in too).

 

"I think Becky has got most of these songs already, in fact, because I am the little sister; she introduced me to many of them!"

 

And the tracks are...

1. Groove is in the Heart - Dee Lite

2. The Universal - Blur

3. Gabriel - Lamb

4. Anyone can play Guitar - Radiohead

5. Movin' on Up - Primal Scream

6. Free your Mind - En Vogue

7. Coat of Many Colours - Dolly Parton

8. Storytelling - Belle & Sebastian

9. Buffalo Stance - Neneh Cherry

10. Raspberry Beret - Prince

11. Teardrop - Massive Attack

12. Beyonce - Single Ladies (Put a ring on it)

13. On the street where you live - from the My Fair Lady soundtrack

14. God gave rock'n'roll to you - KISS

MEMORY TAPES: 2ND MARCH 2012

Post categories:

Jon Teamlaverne Jon Teamlaverne | 10:24 UK time, Friday, 2 March 2012

Your Memory Tapes today is another tale of love, but this time it's a man's love for a tape... Jon Saunders, from Bolton, tells his story...

 

"I used to love cassette tapes. I mean, really love them. I didn't move onto CDs until they stopped selling albums on the format at the end of the 90s and even then, it was very begrudgingly that I switched onto this new-fangled format (It'll never catch on, you know)

 

"The best thing was always the mixtape, of which I made many and (quite unashamedly) I considered myself something of a master with the twin cassette desk record-play-pause buttons. Ne'er a clunk nor premature end to a song could be heard on one of my many tapes.

 

"Last week, I was busy relaying loft insulation when a small slip led to my leg puncturing the ceiling into the spare room. What a dreadful mess. I spent all of this weekend trying to sort it, and came upon a (very large) box of my old tapes.

 

"The dust-covered chore of sorting through the debris was brightened considerably by reliving the memories held in a tape titled: "What A Nice Day"

 

"I think this was compiled about 2002, and was the default tape to grab when heading out to the car on the sort of day that demanded windows be lowered and appropriate tunes blasted."

 

He paints quite a picture don't he!? Here's the tracks...

 

A:

I Wish - Stevie Wonder

Pressure Drop - The Maytals

Get Carter - Roy Budd

Watermelon Man - Mongo Santamaria

Truck Turner - Isaac Hayes

Linus and Lucy - Vince Guaraldi Trio

007 - Desmond Decker

Evil Vibrations - Mighty Ryeders

Funky President - James Brown

Sir Duke - Stevie Wonder

Dance Across The Floor - Jimmy Bo' Horne

Harlem Shuffle - Bob & Earl

The Unhooked Generation - Freda Payne

Ali Baba - John Holt

Everybody Needs Love - Slim Smith

 

B:

El Mundo Pequeno - Ian Brown

Cocaine In My Brain - Dillinger

Under Me Sleng Teng - Wayne Smith

Estelle - A Man Called Adam

The Scene Revisited - Love Rec vs Karman Ellis

Save Me - Nina Simone

Distractions - Zero 7

Evening Sun - Gemma Hayes
