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.

Problems With Rapidshare

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.

Try using hotfile. I've found mediafire is deleting files faster than buggery on my site.
Welcome back. Sorry to hear the bad news. best wishes.

RapidShare has always had teething problems with files disappearing or being difficult to access, and recently MegaUpload has gone down too. I guess the only way to grab these classic gems of yours (and other uploaders) in the future (if all else fails) is by way of torrenting but that usually requires the user to hire a seedbox on a monthly or yearly subscription basis (rather than constantly uploading from their home connection). The risk factors involved with such practices include the hosting site being closed or restricted as well as PC issues at the user end. Either way the trick is to get these classics while they're hot! The good old days when 'taping the radio' was a big deal to lots of kids.

Good to see some memories here and looking forward to possible future re-ups from you.
