My Mums 1978 Mixtape

Recently I was doing a stocktake and unboxing of some personal media on cassettes and minidiscs and I found a tape I had kept from when Dad had a clean up of his old place of Songs that my mum, Dot Patrick recorded illegally off of the radio. That must be where I get the mixtape bug from. so I put it into the car stereo I have set up in the manspace here and boy was I floored, memories came back from early childhood that I had not pondered upon in quite sometime. So I took it upon myself to find remastered audio of these songs and put together this digital mixtape project, which you can download and listen to yourself. Below is a Bonus download of the original tape that mum made with bits of kids talking and Djs back announcing tracks in places. Enjoy.
