Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm RomanDogBird:

twitch-era ministry is the greatest
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm Daniel Blumin:

RDB! Thanks fer tuning in! Have you seen the vids from the era?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm RomanDogBird:

the music videos? the one for over the shoulder is sick. i wish there were more live videos of this era though, you can just barely find anything in that regard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Daniel Blumin:

the ones from chicago live!
Avatar 10:41pm Mikula:

Seriously, I dread the (imminent) day when there are no more working tape decks on earth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Kat in Chicago:

Just tuned in. Looks/sounds like fun in progress!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Ike:

Type I, type II, or type IV? I'm a type II man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Daniel Blumin:

Mikula, I am going to buy an xtra one just in case! Kat, hello to you in Chicago! Have a Bauhuas bootleg where they do Chicago is my kind of town... IKE!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Kat in Chicago:

Daniel, OMG I've never heard that!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm coelacanth∅:

i think i'll be dead before all the cassette decks are dead. they're pretty easy to get and a lot of people repair them.
if i had more space i'd hoard 5 or 6 of 'em.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Kat in Chicago:

My friends keep putting out music on tapes so I'm shopping for a deck
  10:57pm Rodrigo:

Tuned in from Santiago de Chile! (:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Kat in Chicago:

awesome, Rodrigo

Avatar 10:58pm khd:

there's definitely a little cassette flatness but i love it!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm Kat in Chicago:

I just caught the last 3 tracks but they sounded good on the stream through my lil M-Audio monitors.
  11:02pm osvi:

Great show, great round table. Getting me through my workout.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Ike:

Hi Rodrigo! Is Santiago nice in December? Should I go there? Or maybe I should go to Peru or Ecuador instead? What do you think? Or maybe Buenos Aires... so difficult to decide!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm Kat in Chicago:

I definitely made CD-R mixes for people when that was a new thing you could do. Not quite as fun as making mixtapes though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm coelacanth∅:

i've made people mic cds, but the bad thing about those is that the listener can skip songs; so the mixtape is a journey, whereas the mix cd is just a collection.
Avatar 11:09pm slugluv1313:

good evening, Daniel and everyone!
great show, LOVE the tapes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Kat in Chicago:

I'm really mad at myself for losing a mixtape I made in the 80s that included bits of "Love Connection" off TV, answering machine messages, etc. I can't remember what actual music was on it, except that I know I interpolated The Roches' "The Largest Elizabeth In The World" with the Love Connection audio.

Avatar 11:10pm northguineahills:

I made so many friends/gfs mix tapes in the 90s. I made my current wife a mixtape in 2008 when I met her I mailed her a walkman so she could listen to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Kat in Chicago:

wow, going the extra mile there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Kat in Chicago:

I need to get a Walkman off ebay so I can play tapes on my show.
  11:12pm Marc15:

I still have a boombox
Avatar 11:14pm northguineahills:

I was doing spring cleaning three years ago, and my box of mixtaps/mastertapes were put out into the common hallway (the hallway was never cleaned) and the new landlord hired people to clean the common area and they took my box of tapes, and none of the workers knew where it went.

I was gifted my father's 70s boombox, and a certain ragga/hiphop crew used it as a prop in their music video.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm Kat in Chicago:

coelecanth, I assembled mine on the computer and burned them as a continuous track so they couldn't skip around easily. heh heh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm coelacanth∅:

ha! clever Kat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm Kat in Chicago:

I never saw Ministry either, lol. Although I was on a Phil Donahue panel with Al circa 1984 and we had a good laugh about that at Smart Bar a few years later.
Avatar 11:25pm Number Six:

I used to work in a place that had prerecorded announcements on cassettes. Every half hour or so they would play over the stores Muzak.One night I borrowed the next weeks tape & got rather creative with it. Drove the store management nuts when clips from Batman, Power Rangers Beavis & Butthead would pop up at random during official company commercials.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Kat in Chicago:

Number Six, you are my new hero.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm coelacanth∅:

hahaha! good clean fun, or sticking it to the man...Excellent either way!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm coelacanth∅:
