Mixed Tape Friday Night! Heavy Metal with Hugh M. Hefner!

Did Hugh M. Hefner actually create this mixed tape for a 1985 heavy metal barf bag birthday party? Does the "Hefster" signature inspire enough confidence to proclaim museum grade provenance? It is up to you, the listener, to decide for yourself.

Even without the Playboy Mansion seal of approval, this is a superb mixed tape with all sorts of goofy additions. If you can endure Iron Maiden, the beginning of side two is a real rib tickler. And if you have never heard Warrior or Madam X, you are in for a treat.

About D+R Mixed Tape Radio
Every Friday night, Dinosaurs and Robots will upload a dusty cassette mixed tape! Found at garage sales and junkyard glove boxes, mixed tapes provide all the voyeuristic thrills of reading somebody’s diary without the related ethical quandaries.

Tune in each week for a new exploration into heavy metal thunder road trips, teenage bedroom melancholy meltdowns, college radio clunkers, headbanger barf bag parties, glam rock glitter fests, industrial punch-your-lights-out rockers and the ill-advised tapes created by lovers soon to be spurned. Before collaborative filtering, music was hand selected for us by those who know us best.
