For many years, when I was a kid, I used to listen to the radio and try to tape songs I liked. I eventually had dozens of tapes, of varying degrees of quality. (I used to call those tapes "Radio Recordings." Très imaginative, no? And I thought of myself "DJ Dazzle Dave," even though I wasn't a DJ.) I don't even know how often I listened to those tapes; I just felt more comfortable knowing I had them, just in case. But anyway, I eventually went through this collection and copied some of the songs to other tapes, discarding many songs that I didn't feel I really needed, or that simply didn't sound good because of the poor quality of the recording. A few years or so after that big project of copying & discarding, I did it again, this time with only two tapes left, called "Radio Recordings Remnants."

I had maybe some other series of tapes, such as Tape Transfers, which were things I'd either copied from pre-recorded tapes (such as those belonging to someone else or those of my own which I might want to sell, being interested in very few songs on the albums) or from CDs (such as those at my college radio station, WUPI, where I was a DJ for a time). Eventually I abandoned most of those tapes, as well. ...Also, I might have a few mixed tapes other people gave me. Anyway, I thought I might provide a list here of what I've got. Not all of it is likely of very good quality, but I have it. Just in case. You know.
