Pirate Radio Tape Archive
I finally got round to going through big boxes of tapes and transferring them to mp3. Amongst them were loads of tapes of pirate radio stations from 1989 to 1997 and I’ve started uploading these to a new, dedicated Mixcloud account called Blu Mar Ten Tapes.
It’s going to take a long time but there’s already recordings up there from Trace & Rymetyme, Bryan G, Goldie & Grooverider, Bukem, Nicky Blackmarket & Stevie Hyper D and more. Keep an eye out for new additions by following the account.
There’s a download link in the info panel of every mix so you can download them if you like.
Oh, also I have to say some of the most interesting parts of the tapes are the advert breaks, like the ones at around 8 mins here. Make sure you don’t skip them, they’re a real gold mine of history.
Head over to www.mixcloud.com/BluMarTenTapes to hear & download the mixes.
