A couple of days ago I came across the Cassette Archive, a WordPress blog in which the author digitizes the contents of his/her old cassettes and makes them available for all in mp3 format. “What an excellent idea”, I thought, “why don’t I do that?”. Thus.
I can’t remember exactly what all those cassettes in the two big bags in my garage contain, but it’s a safe bet that there will be lots of old radio stuff; phone ins, news, sessions, live music, the odd documentary and loads of no doubt disjointed stuff from Radio Four. There should also be some American stuff as well, as I spent the years 1987-1991 living in Washington State. All of it will be meticulously sorted, cataloged and uploaded, a process which should begin once my new cassette player arrives (hopefully) on Wednesday.
In the meantime, here’s a picture of a smug dog.
