In my cleaning process, I have come upon a large crate of cassette tapes from a time long ago. For those of you who do not know what a cassette tape is, it is what people used to listen to music before Ipods and even CDs, although not as far distant as the 8-track.
I want to see what is recorded on them before I either toss them or return them to storage. Unfortunately, most are unlabeled. So I have dusted off the old boom box, and am listening to all these tapes. I am hoping to find some of my long lost interviews with several artists, but so far I have found:
1. Answering machine tapes from both my brother and my machines during college. 2. A recording of 20 The Countdown's tribute to Rich Mullins 3. A recording of Jerry Springer's Dr. Talk. 4. A couple tapes where I am driving around talking into a recorder for no apparent reason. 5. My first broadcast on KLRC 6. My airchecks that I sent to radio stations in hope of a job. 7. The theme songs from 1991-1995 summer camps at Miracle Camp. Word! 8. Some salsa and meringue music from my time in Venezuela. 9. A tape I made of Christian music sped up to sound like the Chipmunks. 10. The KLRC Christmas greetings circa 1995 or 1996.
There are some gems that I might even transfer to MP3 for all to hear. But for now I must go back to cleaning.
