Mix tapes...then and now...
As times have changed, the idea has not.
One of the nicest things to do for someone is to make them a 'mix tape'. In the olden days, when you liked someone you would take the time and compile enough songs to fill two sides of a cassette tape.
Even the order meant something. It's so easy to make 'tapes'...now CD's... today for certain events; travel, working out, sharing, sleeping, weddings, slide shows, etc.
Maybe my age, and the lack of receiving any mix tapes in the past 30 years, has made me melancholy. I wish the above old tape would play in a player still. As it has warped over the years no one can listen to it anymore. Thank goodness for iTunes. Gotta love the easy of downloading today. Still, I miss those days when I received my very own 'mix tape'.
