Spool’s Out Radio #168: A Tape Findings Scrapbook

Welcome to a scrapbook of found tape sounds documented on a blog from back in the 2010s called Tape Findings: Found Home Recordings, And Other Cassette Deck Oddities. Here comes a mish mash of American tape junk from the late-20th century, including shopping mall karaoke booth recordings, kids playing with their tape decks, rambling raps, salesmen, voicemail recordings – it’s all there. What a strange time. Just like today. There’s real beauty in this kind of warped analogue self-documentation; the ancestor to today’s crystalline selfies. Both times seem to scream a hope and a desire simply to be seen, heard, and acknowledged.

Huge credits to the makers of the decade-old blog
