For those of us of certain age, who used to hang out in the later part of the 20th century … mix tapes made for yourself and given to friends might be an early equivalent to contemporary social media. Might not. We here at the DUTR studios have been digitizing cassettes and reel 2 reel recordings recently and want to share some of these wonderful old mix tapes. These mixtape recordings will each be presented as one long file, not broken up by song or piece, just like a mix tape.
We were recently really thrilled to work with the archive for legendary jazz DJ Leigh Kamman. We were provided with amazing archive radio interviews from the 1940’s through the mid 1960’s and provided a visual slideshow. Interviews include Woody Herman, Oscar Peterson, Art Tatum, Joe Turner and Henry ‘Red’ Allen.
