mix tapes.  
I was cleaning up and found some old mix tapes from 1986 and 1987. Instead of just throwing them away, I found an old Walkman, cataloged what was on them, and then threw them away.

The first one was recorded from KISS FM, and the others are from KROQ, both in the LA/Orange County area.

Songs titles behind the cut.

I saw them once around 1993. Ran into a friend at the concert too.

*Plays some Oingo Boingo in iTunes*... I have 39 of their songs.
