The digital world has finally caught up with the humble audio cassette as electrical retailer Currys announced it will stop stocking them.
Last year Currys sold just 100,000 tapes compared with 83 million in 1989.
The store will also phase out tape decks, which are currently available in less than 5% of audio equipment.

Now this news story got me thinking this week, when I was growing up, most of my music was on casette tape, I'd always have three of four tapes stashed about my person, mixtapes were an essential item! I still have bags full of my old casette tapes so this weeks show, i have picked out some of my favorite tracks from my old mix tapes, tunes I used to love and still do.

Bit of a classic selection this week all in all. Enjoy!
