From radio versions of your favourite, to vinyl sound effects records....

Radio plays - or interviews with your favourite idols....

Or perhaps you have memories of holding a microphone up to the television and recording your favourite shows and films....

What are your audio memories?

A horror collector friend of mine had this on audio cassette and I borrowed it off him,

Great stuff, penned by Victor Pemberton and starring Vincent Price and Coral Browne......

That cover looks a bit copyright-busting though!

Then my dad stopped being so stingy and invested in a VHS recorder.
