My Reel Tapes: #6

This is post #6 in a series with playlists from my audio reel tapes that were recorded from FM radio broadcasts during the 60’s and 70’s that I liked. I decided to create Spotify playlists so I could listen to the music again, and share with others. And it’s a lot cheaper than converting all the tapes to DVD and better quality. This brings back lots of memories for me, and I hope you enjoy them too.

  1. Hi Doug, just wanted to say that the idea of the reel tapes playlists is particularly GREAT. Possibl because it is deeply rooted to your own biography, and one feels this strength in the music selection.

    • I’m glad you like them. I have many more that I will be posting in the series. I think they do reflect much of the music of that time.

      I enjoyed the process of recording, listening, selection, and editing. Since I no longer have reel tape players, making Spotify playlists seemed a prefect solution for listening once again to my music from over 45 years ago, and share it with others who might enjoy it too.

      It might bring back memories for other older followers like me, and interesting for younger listeners who didn’t live through that period.
