I recently came across a 1996 list of things I was looking for in the pre-YouTube era when I was trading tapes. A lot of them I’m posting on our Facebook page that I’ve seen or heard since then. There are still some elusive things that I haven’t found so I thought I’d put up this list of holy grails and add to it if I think of anything else. Please let me know if you know where to see or hear any of these! Thanks.
