Old CFNY Tapes

Post by Kakarious » Wed Nov 29, 2006 10:46 am



My father grew up listening to CFNY, and specifically, he listened to it a lot throughout the eighties. In our house, we have boxes and boxes of tapes that he recorded from the station with dates and all. You can even sometimes here the deejays punching out \"You're listening to CFNY..The Spirit, of Radioooo!\" We used to listen to the tapes in the car, so consequently, although I was born in '87, I grew up listening to the music of the late seventies and early eighties. But, since the advent of CDs, these tapes have found themselves collecting dust.

In the months leading up to Christmas, I've decided to listen to the tapes, and compile a CD version for my father as a present. I've had to go through the tapes and find the correct Artists and Titles for the songs (some are labelled correctly on the tape jacket...some are not) by using a variety of internet searching techniques. At any rate, I'm now looking for a couple MP3s that have at this point elluded me. It's frustrating, because identifying them isn't the hardest part. If anyone has the following songs in MP3 format on their computer, that would be awesome!

(Surprise, surprise...everyone wants this one) The Puppets - Way of Life

Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel - Irrisistible (not the version on the CD \"Yes You Can\" he released solo in 1992...they did a single of this in the eighties)

and Images In Vogue - Just Like You

My e-mail is stumarks@rogers.com I hope someone can help me out!

I didn't receive an e-mail...maybe it's because my e-mail link above is \"stumarks@rogers.com...I\" You should make sure you take the \"...I\" off! Also, what is your e-mail, because my spamkiller is funny and I should add you to a safe e-mail sender list. Thanks a ton!!!

Does anyone have anything by \"The Boys\", or their alter egos \"The Yobs\"?

Hey again Kakarious,

Got you 'PM' and could not reply, error message?

No, sorry I don't have it (Yobs album) transferred to mp3 and do not have the means until I upgrade some some hardware - ie - old computer and turntables! Sorry I can't help you..

Happy Ho Ho anyway..
