hen Sony introduced the cassette Walkman in the early 80s, I was on it from the start. In the predigital era, mix tapes were the only way to customize your portable listening experience, and I made dozens and dozens of them

complete with elaborate cover inserts. I compiled the master on a chrome or metal cassette which I never played afterward except to dub copies from it. After the advent of compact discs, I eventually stopped giving them away because no one owned a tape deck anymore, and I began converting them to CD. Below are many of the mix CDs I've made, and most of them started out life as a cassette tape. Click for track listings.
