I'm sure this must have been done at some point, on this or the old board, but is anybody interested in swapping mix tapes?

And I mean CASSETTES, not burned CD's or anything else.

I don't know how this would work but I thought I'd see if there's any interest first.

Depends. Where does one get blank cassette tapes these days?

The last time I wanted to put stuff on a tape I ended up going to a charity shop and buying a Michael Bolton tape for 49p, but when I tried to record over it, Mikey kept leaking through. This is, sadly, a true story.

Woolworth, Sainsbury's, Wilkinson, where I live. Argos (not sure about that one).

I get mine in Wilkinson.

i think the file you're uploading is just too big for yousendit, because they only allow files upto 100mb. 18 minutes of wav would be around 180mb or so.

I don't know, there's far too much frivolity on this board.

Did I say board? Bordello, more like.



Getting back to mix tapes - Yeah, I'm there.

They've been doing this for some time on another forum I use, and this is how it works:

One trusted boardie acts as the hub. He or she recieves a tape from each person involved. They then distribute the tapes randomly, one to each sender. The recipient does not know what the music is on the tape he or she recieves, and does not know whose tape it is. Ideally, each recipient then writes a little review of the tape that they recieved. Going by convention, such a scheme on this board would involve the taping of music OTHER than Sonic Youth. At the start of each 'round', addresses are sent by pm to the organiser and a deadline is set for tapes to arrive.

If one person keeps control, then it means that the tapes distributed are anonymous, and it means that people aren't put in awkward positions (ie they don't have to reveal their address to a board nemesis!).

I suppose to cover postage, a small amount of cash could be sent to the organiser along with the cassette?

That's it, really.

Sounds a good place to start to me. I would happily volunteer to coordinate if enough people were interested.

I'll wait for further interest & whether everybody is ok with the kind of arrangement Hip Priest is suggesting.

i'm very sorry sir!


as for the topic, i'd be interested but as said before i'd have to check my cassette player first. i've been listening to a few old tapes at work not too long ago though.

If anyone has trouble finding cassettes, then try a charity shop. Even if there's none for sale, they probably have a ton lying around to be thrown out; imost places won't sell tapes that people have recorded themselves, as it is classed as trading in illegal bootlegs, but such tapes get get donated all the time. If the shop won't sell them to you, they can still give you them in return for a donation.

There are loads of small shops that sell blank tapes.They are also particularly cheap in pound shops.
