I was over the moon to receive an email from Hilary @ Haptree this week asking me to guest write the Folksy Friday section on the Folksy Blog... I accepted immmediately and then went into panic over drive!! I had 3 themes running around my brain but the one I was happiest with was my '1986 Mega Mix' ....as of tomorrow morning, you can view my little Folksy posthere ...im so happy :)
(scroll down for my own post and links to the shops...cheers)
"I made you a mix tape..."
This coming Tuesday sees Channel 4 broadcast the first episode of THIS IS ENGLAND ’86 and I’m very excited, not just because I’m a huge fan of Shane Meadows, but because I remember that year so clearly… It was the year of Halleys Comet, Short Circuit, Ferris Bueller, The World Cup, Transformers, Mike Tyson and one of my all time favourite films ‘The Money Pit’
1986…I’m 9 years old and my world revolves around Michael Jackson, roller skating, Cherry Cola, Atari, making up dance routines, swapping Panini stickers, reading Smash Hits….and taping the charts. We’ve all done it, precise timing of the pause button was crucial, and when we’d finished? …we made mix tapes on hi-speed dubbing!
I hope you enjoy my mix tape from Folksy this week! (pinks the link)
