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.

Whoever you are THANK YOU! what a legend. I Completed my highschool years in this era and had all of these tapes which have now obviously deteriorated into nothing and for some of the better songs on these tapes this is the only place to find them. WELL DONE and please keep it up.

I had the LP of this years ago but it was badly scratched (so it would skip/stick on several tracks including The Greg Kihn Band - The Breakup Song - even after cleaning it - it was still bad) - many thanks for this tape version. No skips and squeaky clean - I wish my original LP copy had been this good! :)
