michael bowhay megamix004Brian used to tell us about these mix tapes his older brother Michael made. He would take tiny snippets of songs and fill a cassette tape with them. Brian described his brother’s selections as only the part of a song that totally kicked ass. This was in the late 1980s when the relatively new combination of “tape decks” with record players and CD players made music-loving teenagers into DJs all across the nation.

For some reason, we never actually heard these tapes – we only heard about them. So, when we found Michael on Facebook a few years ago, we had to ask him about those legendary mixes! Coincidentally, Michael replied that he had just completed his first set of new mixes in many years. He called them his 99 MegaMixes: 99 songs in 20 minutes! He kindly sent us a 3-disc set with these custom-collaged comic-themed inserts.
