1991-1995 Mix Tapes from Spudart

High School and College Tape Mixes

In high school and college, I made mix tapes from recording the radio. Occasionally there might be a few songs mixed in from albums borrowed from the Oak Lawn Library. For context, I graduated high school in 1993, college in 1997. It’s fun to look back at the songs captured from that era.

One of these days it would be fun to convert these over to one long mp3 file for each cassette side. Then again, I need to do that with the radio show that Erik and I did for four years at Wesleyan.

I thought I decorated these more, but at least I customized the fonts. The start of my graphic design career!

High School and College Tape Mixes (song listings)

Below the jump is the song list for all the tapes (if you don’t see the list, click on the comments link)
The song listings of my college and high school tape mixes from the radio. My handwriting looks to be really bad from those days. lol. Plus, it’s funny to see how I would abbreviate words like how kids do now-a-days. Apparently I never liked to spell out the word “You,” it’s always “U.”

What an outstanding collection of music!

Wow, I can’t believe you had tapes like this too! That’s so cool. It’s like finding a time capsule. I want to convert mine to mp3s also – I taped a lot of things like interviews, live performances, and band trivia that is probably impossible to find. Although it’s probably also no longer of interest to anyone 🙂 You had a radio show AND there are tapes of it? ha! I need to hear this.

That’s some crazy collection of recordings!
