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 Ed lover & Dr Dre (the New York Dr Dre) on WBLS in New York City rom 1992. I wouldn't have recorded this in NYC (didn't go there until 1995!) so this was probably dubbed off of another tape although I dont recall who from anymore? Its a great mix show highlighting some of the heavy Hip Hop Jams of the time. I kept all the ads in as I think it gives good context!
