In the 70’s and 80’s, the mixed tape became hugely popular –effective, convenient, portable and inexpensive. The concept of a mixed tape happened after the golden age of the LP in the 1960’s and early 70’s. The smell of the vinyl record, the liner notes, the concept album – all contributed to its popularity.
Anyone could make their own recordings from their vinyl collections or one could record directly from the radio onto a dollar priced blank cassette tape. Musician Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) explains, “We would buy cassettes and share them with friends and pass them around. And then we’d see those bands when they came into town. We felt that music was ours.”
You’d pass your mixed tape of songs that were meaningful along to your friends. The song choices represented big moments of your life – experiences you shared with the special people in your life were inside the stories of those songs. These were songs about “who” you were and “how” you wanted people to see you.
The year 2017 is the 65th anniversary year of Revv52. We’d like to celebrate by presenting Mixed Tape LIVE to you, our audience. It’s music that we all enjoy – current hits and significant music that made an impact on our lives.
