Red Tape Mix Up
When ever you move it's aways a bit crazy but I have to say I found a jem among all the craziness. I had this no frills CD/Cassette player laying around the crib and for no apparent reason. Then while moving and going through my storage I found out what the reason was when I came across a box that had my cassette tapes. I mean these are tapes that the music can take you on a journey, way back, back into time. The nights I would record many of the hip hop mix shows they had on WBLS and KISS FM(oh can't forget Stretch & Bobbito too). A few House tapes from people I know as well as some of my favorite hardcore punk tapes. These were demos and some albums. Just the fact that I got to play them and press REWIND and FAST FOWARD was surreal. Having to find the song that you want to listen to could be a task especially if it was at the end of a side. It just put a smile on my face to sit and vibe off of these tunes. So much music comes and goes. Now the trick will be how to transfer the music into MP3's.
