Now That's What You Might, Hypothetically, Have Called Music II cassette inlayOur ongoing alternate universe series of Now albums that never existed carries on with this Virtual Double LP or Cassette. Using the same template as the real world Now albums – two records or cassettes, 7 or 8 tracks per side, biggest hits of the past four months or so three times a year – this is the Now album that would have been released in the summer of 1980. There’s even a cassette adaptation of the front cover artwork, should you have the time and inclination and two blank C60s lying around.

This and all the other Virtual CDs can be yours when you join us on Mixcloud Select. You also get the weekly extended Deluxe Edition of Off The Chart, the spin-off show Further Off The Chart every dexy1, and other special shows whenever an idea grabs us. You can also download shows to listen offline, thus saving your precious mobile data. All this for just £2.99 a month! Can’t be bad.
