January 1989 Compilation

Not sure there will be an audience for these tapes, so we’ll see how this one goes.

Back in my younger days I saved money on tapes by just recording hip hop (or anything else I liked) whenever I heard it, on John Peel, local Notts pirate Heatwave etc and made my own compilations (Top 40 style).

Let me know if its worth my while to put any more of these up?
