    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!

    I did the whole "holding the microphone up to the television" thing and remember recording....

    GORGO
    COUNTESS DRACULA
    THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS
    THE GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN
    FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN
    TWINS OF EVIL
    HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR: THE SILENT SCREAM

    BLAKE'S 7: SEASON 4
    MOST OF THE DAVISON DOCTOR WHO ERA
    DOCTOR WHO: SEASON 22


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

    Frankly, I was pleased!
