Why I Do This
I was lucky enough to be a teenager through the eighties and I was mad on music, big hair, bad make-up and all that went with being a teenager of the times. All these years later I still have the big hair but now it is "touched" with grey and the bad make-up is gone but the tunes still play loudly in my head and even louder if they grace my radio, tv or mp3player. I will gladly admit to being a"mainstream" fan for the most part but I do have the odd liking for some of the less "played to death" bands of the time. What started all this was a drawer full of slowly decaying cassettes and a fear of losing the music that is on them. So I began to recreate them onto CD and I am loving it and finding some fantastic albums along the way.
I would like to re-dedicate this site to my late husband, he lost his long battle with cancer in 2011, he was a huge 80's fan, possibly even more so than myself. So for you my love.

Hi All, I am slowly re-adding download links to each of the original posts so please be patient and check back often. NB:Also please be aware before you download that I upload files ripped at a bitrate of 128. If you prefer a higher bitrate I am only too happy to of supplied the tracklistings to assist you in searching for those tracks at a bitrate you prefer.Thanks Meggsy
Along with the obvious collection of Various Artists cassettes I have many many Artist's Own cassttes and I would love to share them also but I am still trying to repair broken links thanks to the Rapidahare dilema. This week though I received an email from David, one reader who like myself is a Models fan and well the result of that email is tonight's link. Models 1986 Album "Media",
Well I finally decide to restart my blogging just to hit one big hurdle straight up. The files that I have re-upped so far are not reachable from rapidshare (GGGRRRRR) So I shopped around for another solution and have decidd to try mediafire. So bear with me as I transfer files over to them. Thanks Guys & Gals.
After much debate with myself I have decided to give a Facebook page for this blog a go. I'm thinking it might be a better way of contact than email as many of you may of noticed, I'm pretty crappy at responding to emails so drop on by and say Gidday here
I have found my way back to the little blog that I started many years ago. After sifting through way too many unread emails I have been working at re-upping files, passwords etc etc. All this takes time so please be patient and to all that have emailed with password queries I will be repairing as I go also.
Yes I am still alive, flat out packing house at the moment, trying to buy a new one and sell two others at the same time. So not much time apart from work and this thing I think they call sleep. So wanted to "POP" in and say Gidday and to pass on a huge thanks to Mad Danno for his fierce defense of our little blog, the guy is a real gent in my eyes. So bye bye to Aus Pop Mix, oh and thanks so much for actually sending me links to STUFF THAT WAS MINE OR DAN'S TO BEGIN WITH YOU TWAT. Not my most lady like moment guys and to you I apologise but that kind of behaviour shits me to tears. Subject and his blog now closed!!!!
So as they say..... stay tuned, have found some goodies as I have been packing that I am dying to share.
For the benifit of all the "Copyright Police" out there. The artwork used for my banner I found on Amazon.com and it is the coverart for an album called 80s Tapes-Pop & Wave. Yes I have altered the image somewhat and NO I am not claiming it as my own. Now for the big bit, Any of the music I post links for downloading are for sampling purposes only. DELETE THE FILES WITHIN 24 HOURS PLEASE!!
