    The 80's Playground Summer MixTape

    I am happy to share a new project @andyandy started that came from the 80sPG Unofficial Mixtape thread. Dust off your Walkman and pop in some fresh batteries to listen to the mix on an OFFICIAL physical tape! A limited number of these cassette tapes were dubbed on nostalgic blanks by andyandy. He also arranged and mastered the mix and I created the art, which is printed on a high quality fold-out glossy insert, with the track listing inside. The tapes have been completed and are ready to ship. More details will come soon!

    NOTE!!! Tapes are not for sale and will only be given out to active participants in the forums in good standing. One tape per person. Take a break from FB / IG and post something about the 80's, your collectibles, etc!

    Thanks, yeah, it got "cold" (West coast cold) all of the sudden here! It is warm blankie time.

  4. Holy crap, a real physical tape? lol....I don't even have a tape deck! My old car was the last thing I have owned that could play cassette tapes, and sadly it is no more. Have fun guys!

    Has the track list been released? :-)

    @jasondecay Yeah, the thought was to create something new with the abandoned technology. The blanks were found from places like The Goodwill. Even if you don't have a player, it makes a great display item especially since it can stand up on its own. :)

    The tracks were selected from the summer mixtape thread we had going earlier:

    SIDE A (~43:40)
    The System Dont Disturb This Groove 04:00.00
    Earth, Wind & Fire September 03:36.00 7:36
    Tears For Fears Shout 06:25.00 14:00
    Kraftwerk Trans Europe Express 04:02.00 18:02
    Corey Feldman What's Up With The Youth? 04:57.00 23:00
    Bananrama Cruel Summer 03:51.00 27:00
    Red Hot Chili Peppers Sir Psycho Sexy 08:17.00 35:17
    Jimmy Castor Band Bertha Butt Boogie 06:15.00 41:31
    The Sloppy Seconds V.A.C.A.T.I.O.N 01:54.00 43:40

    Side B (~43:40)
    Masters of Sex Intro / Opening Credits 00:47.00

    @andyandy Just got my Summer mixed tape, thank you so much! Getting a new cassette tape really makes me feel like I traveled back in time. Only wish I had a Walkman to play it in! :-D

    Thanks Andy for your efforts on the tape! I have this portable tape player I got at an estate sale from a neighbor a few years ago. We can hook it up to some speakers to listen to it. :)

    That's awesome. Pick up on one of these bad boys so you can hook it directly into your stereo
