Taking it Back with The Mastermind Street Jam

The Mastermind Street Jam was a great radio show that was broadcast on Energy 108 back in the mid 1990s. I taped the show religiously and have managed to hold on to most of the cassettes from back then.

This is Tape 17 of my collection and the first one that I attempted to do a tracklisting for. As you can see, I wrote the artist and song titles down on a napkin. I was working at a fast food joint at the time so I used what I had on hand. It was so cool that I was able to listen to my cassettes while I worked. I loved that part of the job.

It’s interesting to me that I wrote the tracklist in cursive writing on a napkin and never transferred it to the j-card. I also taped over my Best of Tiffany mixtape. Wow! I must’ve ran out of blank cassettes. I can’t tell you how many dozens of blank tapes I bought in my lifetime. They weren’t cheap back then either. I bet I probably bought over 300 of them.

I love sharing these with you too. I hope you are enjoying this trip down memory lane. Remember that I drop a new episode every week.

Original air date – September 31, 1995
