This is a question Mix Tapes

Everyone's made a mix tape (or CD, USB stick, or whatever kids do these days). Mostly to get in someone else's pants, but we're sure there are other, lesser, reasons too.

So, who did you make it for and why?
And... what was on it?

Mixes for Freedom
Way back in the distant days of the early eighties I used to exchange mix tapes with a chum in Johannesburg in what was then the apartheid state of South Africa.
In one of the tracks on the C-90 we used to mix in spoken word, typically messages back and forth between the ANC in the UK and RSA. Despite quite harsh customs, no one ever found a trace of these. The key was to put it in an obviously black track, which white customs men wouldn't want to listen to for any time other than the random ff, listen, ff, listen that they sometimes did.

I think I've still got one of the tapes, very interesting to listen to now.
