Tony D (RIP) joins Paul at WPRB for this episode of Tenth Planet  on WPRB in 2004. This was recorded off of a stream directly to an MP3 file rather than cassette, but it’s a great 3-hour set from the September 11, 2004 edition of “Tenth Planet.” Tone’s on the wheels the entire time.

Rare album from 311, cassette rip
Topics: 311, damnit, 1990s, funk, rock
(For Cammy :o) ) The first tape in a new lot of classic AEI Propac cassettes recently acquired in an online sale, for your shopping/dining/working listening enjoyment. Unlike the others this one (and two other forthcoming instrumental programmes) have full documentation, halleluyah! The selections are much more traditional jazz-driven than Contemporary Instrumentals. In particular the compilation focusses on the popular jazz and easy listening acts of the mid-20th century such as Dave Brubeck,...

A relaxing and low-key compilation of beautiful light classical piano solos and chamber pieces. It would be a good tape for a quiet dinner gathering or perhaps at camp when backpacking. (Yes I am serious, and maybe next summer it'll even be trail-tested.) Speed correction was -26.75% using four songs as key time references. No restoration, EQ or noise reduction was done on this transfer. The audio has been split into separate mono tracks for this presentation. There is a small amount of...

(To Cammy :O) ) Another in the second AEI Propac cassette collection. An all-instrumental compilation (as the title suggests) from 1999. The programme is fairly similar of Muzak's "Contemporary Instrumental" a.k.a. "Plaza" programme at the time, which included new-age style cuts but no classical chamber pieces like the much earlier tape #5374 has. Unlike tape 5374, this one has full documentation ("JPEG"/"TEXT" options). It should not be confused or...

Another AEI custom light rock/instrumentals tape, from February 1993. The client name is not known. (It's not from The Gap. I've verified it.) It sounds like it could be another Red Lobster instore programme, albeit a little more upbeat than the August tape. I believe the discrepancy of volume levels and companding between tracks was an issue with how the recording was mastered rather than physical damage. I have a couple more Special Programme tapes up here from that same period that are also...

Great songs and great memories from the intersection of East Pine Street and Broadway. AM Only & Stardust fans, this one's for you. Recording/publication date unknown; probably early 1990s but I guess it really doesn't matter since it truly is "Timeless Pop". Speed correction -26.75%. Usual "no-further-processing" boillerplate applies. This one has probably the most severe side length discrepancy I've seen yet. 33 seconds! UPDATE 2022 May 06: I have done a second...

Another FM1-like adult contemporary/soft rock compilation in the AEI Propac collection (upper-left). Like tape 9411, it is similar enough of tape 9380 that I believe 9380 is actually another Timeless Pop programme whose cartridge, for whatever reason, had a generic label instead of the specific one (not a custom tape). It was likely recorded in 1993 or soon thereafter. No restoration, EQ or noise reduction was done on this transfer. Speed reduction was -26.75% (-25% and -1.75% to correct for...

The second one in the series of AEI Music Propac instore music cassettes. Like tape 9380, it is a Foreground Music One-like soft-rock/adult contemporary compilation from possibly mid to late 1992. Curiously the selections do not smooth-segue/crossfade and are "banded" like their CD-I programmes were. (Not certain why. According to Mike Brady AEI started producing CD-I discs in 1995; though he didn't explicitly state so, in theory some cassettes/carts from that point onwards that had...

Another in the recent AEI Music Propac lot (centre-right). This one is a dance compilation of electronic trip-hop, acid jazz and an occasional (now-)"old skool" rap. It was published probably in 1993 or later ("Duran Durant's "Ordinary World" in track 3 dates it to around that time). No restoration, EQ or noise reduction was done on this transfer.

Here's something completely different that I wasn't expecting. The second of the AEI "Merry Christmas" tapes and the first all-Spanish language business music compilation I've ever come across in my years of collecting and airchecking. (I sometimes listened to Muzak's "Fiesta Mexicana" stream via satellite at the neighbour's, but I don't recall ever having recorded it. I may be wrong.) Unfortunately at present I only understand very limited Spanish though I did find it...

(NOTE: I have moved the Mike Brady information here . It made more sense to put it at the start of the collection rather than in the middle.) A relaxing and pleasantly low-key programme of light-classical chamber pieces, focussing on acoustic guitar. This would probably be another good one for quiet dinner gatherings or backpacking, perhaps alongside Classical/Piano #4306 .

Wow... I'm back. Time to pick up and continue the AEI tapes that had to be put on hold for a while due to technology upgrades and the general weirdness surrounding my schedule and living conditions as of late. This is a Timeless pop album from possibly the very end of the 80s (1989 or 1990), from the style of music and the labelling -- see the scans. The cassette has what I'm calling the "old style" barcode label on the reverse (wide font) but uses the newer "AEI MUSIC"...

(To Mike & Mike :o) ) This is a custom programme played in The Gap clothing stores in early 1993. This tape was in a lot of several acquired through an online auction. Unlike the March tape, this production focusses on British acts, especially new wave and electronic.

This one is similar enough of tape 9380 that I believe 9380 is actually another standard Timeless Pop programme whose cartridge, for whatever reason, had a generic label instead of the specific TP label not for a custom tape. It was produced most likely in mid-1992 - there is a certain selection about 10 minutes into track 2 that clearly dates it to at least then. I will not be held liable if you...

A popular compilation to promote a profitable Yuletide shopping and dining season. This (and another forthcoming one) was in the lot with the previous AEI Propac uploads, though the seller forgot to include them in the picture. Oh well. The Christmas tapes (like #9380) had a generic Christmas label with only a stamped programme number and no date. None of these tapes include any documentation. No restoration, EQ or noise reduction was done on this transfer. It's also the clearest-sounding one...

The selections are not so much jazz-driven (though there are a few smooth jazz cuts included) but more new-age and light-classical oriented, so it has a quite unique sound amongst such programmes.

A classic soft rock/oldies/smooth jazz instrumentals custom programme by AEI Music. This is what customers of Red Lobster seafood restaurants in the USA listened to in late summer 1993. The placement of an instrumental every 3 or 4 vocal cuts almost makes it sound like a loose version of Expressions. RL and Olive Garden were still O&O by General Mills at the time and Darden Restaurants Group wouldn't be spun off until sometime in 1995. Darden switched from AEI to Muzak later in the 1990s so...

Classic rock and country-rock compilation in the recent AEI Music Propac lot (centre-left). It was published probably around 1991 or 1992. They called it "mixed tempo" but I would classify it more as "upbeat". From the high-frequency response and lack of dropouts I would guess the tape didn't get played much. Funny, arguably the best-quality tape in the lot is (strictly MHO) also the one that's the least listenable (though it does have a couple Stevie Ray and Charlie Daniels...
