Up In This Brain 182: Mixtape

In this episode recorded completely on my 1991 Emerson CTR961C 4 Speaker Dual Cassette Recorder, I share some old cassettes I've had for years and talk a bit about the old mixtape days.

To create this file, I copied the podcast over from cassette to Audacity via the Emerson and then did remove a bit of the audio hiss. A lot of hiss is still there so imagine what the tape sounds like! I also corrected the audio level of one part when I was talking and had forgotten to turn the dubbing switch back to off. It's been over 20 years since I made a mixtape so I'm a tad rusty.

Come see me July 24th-26th at the Marshall McLuhan Podcaster Roundtables in Hamilton, Ontario

Up In This Brain 181: Canada Day 2015

Time to jam some songs and jingles up in the bossjock (That's what she said!) and record a podcast for Canada Day. I ramble on about my Canadian memories and play some Canadian tunes.

No podcast next week due to VACATION. You get a whole week of me not infecting your earholes!

Come see me July 24th-26th at the Marshall McLuhan Podcaster Roundtables in Hamilton, Ontario! I'll sign your iPod (That's what she said!).
