In 1987 Jon Wozencroft prepared a 90 minute radio show for private distribution on cassette… Half of this episode is presented here. In those days, mix tapes were a very common way of sharing one's own musical tastes on an informal basis.

Jon Wozencroft and Mike Harding made various collections on cassette over the first ten years of Touch (1982-1992), some actually called "TouchRadio", and some not. TouchRadio is now a formally presented collection of episodes (70 at time of writing) on its own website. It also was acquisitioned as a "Named Collection" by The British Library in 2010.
