Someone Make This Mixtape Thing Happen Here

Posted By on Tue, Nov 29, 2011 at 10:30 AM

While there's something a little strange about the fact that people are all of a sudden into audio cassettes again, now that I'm the owner of a vehicle with a cassette deck again (don't ask), I'd really like to have something to listen to in that once-obsolete format, so if there were some sort of mixtape-trading function here, I'd bring a compilation of only the most scintillating jams to share once I figure out where my tape deck went. The idea of there being some sort of "champion" is weird though:

The San Francisco Mixtape Society is an organization in which people share music through a forgotten medium. CDs are acceptable, but John Verrochi, a founder, says those “who bring cassettes are rewarded with a free drink.” James Brown (not that one), a two-time Mixtape Society champion, credits the Internet for the renaissance: “It’s much easier for people to indulge their inner D.J.”
