In the early 90's DJ Wade aka Peter Wade Keusch (Pete) started collecting reggae, ska, dancehall, rock steady, dub and roots records to play on his weekly radio show on KWUR 90.3FM. Eventually he ended up touring the country for 2 years DJing with his Ska band Isaac Green and the Skalars. These Mix tapes were unearthed recently and dumped from cassette - they're now available as podcasts!

Last year, Jase won an ebay auction for 100 reggae cassette tapes from the 1990's. When the tapes arrived I decided to hook up a dual cassette deck to a DJ mixer and make a mix tape of 'mixed tapes' and call it a TapeCast. This is the result. The term "REWIND" takes on a whole new meaning... Mix features Johnny P, Beanie Man, Spragga Benz, General Degree, Lady Saw, Carl Meeks, Tenor Saw and more.
