Podcast 376 – the enduring magic of the mixtape

In which we relive the joys of cassette mixtape pop snobbery, discover a rock star’s mum who was a WW2 secret agent, name the best songs about mothers, salute Tony “Ian Faith” Hendra RIP and his part in Spinal Tap (and his National Lampoon gags eg ‘Yoko Is A Concept By Which We Measure our Pain’), note the coded messages in Dylan’s ‘Bringing It All Back Home’ sleeve and play ‘Lee Perry Tune or Item of Jamaican Cuisine?’
