Using a file-sharing site, Theodore Hennessey ’96 shares the wealth of music that came out of Notre Dame’s campus at the end of the last century. The collection is getting ever more comprehensive, but here is a sampling. Sometimes the static overwhelms the vocals, but the tape-deck organic quality gives this music some extra character. The tracks (and some artists have entire albums) even come with customized cover art.
