Came across a tape of Jesse Dylan & Gene Valaitis on AM 640 from 1994. The cassette contains:

- IDs and happy audience reaction from Jesse & Gene's first day on AM 640;
- Royal Canadian Mounted Yaksman song;
- explanation of how they get the caramel in the Caramilk bar;
- Jesse and Gene singing along to the jingle "When you eat your Smarties, do you eat the red ones last?";
- a song about toast;
- a bit about a guy trying to order from a drive-through;
- various ID jingles;
- songs taped off what I assume was AM 640 including Snow "Informer";
- after a few songs, the tape started playing backward, unfortunately I don't seem to have a means of playing the tape in reverse;
- mostly silence on the rest of the first side except points where a young girl (I estimate about twelve or thirteen or so) accidentally pressed record while talking;
- on the other side, Guns 'n' Roses "Sweet Child of Mine", taped off an album, cut off in the middle with a country song taped off the radio;
- the last few seconds of another song taped off an album;
- Eric Clapton "Tears in Heaven" from an album;
- silence followed by a portion of Paul McCartney "Live and Let Die"
