Holiday Recordings by Shannon And April With Friends
Home Recordings. Children singing, screaming and storytelling.
All recordings are sourced from cassette tapes found in thrift stores and junk shops, tapes dubbed for us (from two of the kids featured here) and one tape was even found in a gutter! The only exception being the last track on this recording, by Grandpa Norm, singing to his grandson and we thought it fit quite nice on this compilation of home cassette recordings.
Remember when you were a kid? Did you have a recorder? Even if you never held a microphone to your mouth and screamed making funny faces, I'm sure you can recall a time when you jumped around like a silly little monkey hooting and hollering. Maybe you still do! We hope so.
Little is known on the background of these recordings. Estimated recording dates are from the early 1970's to the mid 1990's.
