The Sound Board #36: The Analog Edition

DIY Cassette Tape USB Drive

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month’s episode is manned by Dr. Rob Levy with Prof. Tuffley manning the turret and Widgett Walls huddled in the sidecar.

This episode’s central topic is: mix tapes and curating music. Is it a lost art? Is it the same thing now to create a Spotify playlist? And what about mix CDs? Also, a round-up of summer stuff we liked, we remember Murray Gershenz and Ray Dolby, we look back on twenty years of In Utero and fifty years of cassette tapes, we discuss Miley Cyrus under protest and more.

Also, this is very late going up and you can blame Widge. [Editor’s note: Widge did actually type that bit.]
