Well we are all on lockdown so I decided to digitise my personal tape cassette collection!
I used to record tapes like these off the radio as often as I could to listen to them for the duration of the week, then do another cassette the following weekend (no 24 hour stations playing what you wanted back then – well not in Portishead – the place). Luckily I never taped over them so have hundreds still.
This is the Nationally syndicated ‘National Fresh’ show presented by Milke Allen from 1987 (Broadcast on Severn Sound radio). This was the best way to get high quality recordings of hot new Hip Hop Jams between 1986 & 1988 if you lived in Portishead!
