A “tape?” Yep. Cassette. College. Homemade mix tapes…mash ups…whatevers. My favorite, and still around here somewhere in a box, was the one that JEP, my good buddy made for me. The “Ronnie, Ronnie” tape was packed with classics and I recalled it this morning when I was looking on YouTube for a song to complement my Trad-Ivy Tuesday post that I just put in the queue. The “Ronnie, Ronnie, ADG in love” phrase is written on the tape. The story regarding the tape’s subtitle won’t convey here for manifold reasons. Suffice it to say that it was alcohol and girl related. I did though; find a photo of me from about the time of the love tape’s creation. And coincidentally, the other fella in the photo is Ronnie.
I can recall with reasonable accuracy what’s on my Party Tape 25. And I decided to share some of it with you. A “tape?” Yep.
