The box was addressed to a rented room; it was part of a large old Victorian house in Rochester New York. The box contained several copies of Flipside Fanzine and 13 cassette tapes of KFJC. I guess AL Flipside felt sorry for me and mailed them.
Twenty years later the box has been with me on a long journey. In time I upgraded the cassette tapes to CDs. Then for the last 6 years the box, with CDs, was placed in a closet to mature almost as good as whiskey.
I often wondered what I would do with the tapes, and thought to just throw them away. I tried a few different approaches of presenting the discs, but lost interest.
Now, I have found the perfect place to present the tapes on my WordPress blog. It was rather easy to do: I can rip the CDs through Windows Media changing their format to a compatible one to post on my WordPress blog. Good golly Mrs Molly !!!
These CDs preserve a part of Flipside Fanzine’s musical history which is all about the BIG PUNK ROCK.
I have not listened to them in 28 years. I admit to being embarrassed, humiliated and happily touched by the last three published tapes.
This was one of many examples of being MORE THAN A WITNESS….
Now for Tape Four 08/13/84…
Here are all 13 tapes…
