I used to do that with SST and Alternative Tentacles. If you got on SST's mailing list they would send you a sampler cassette with a bunch of stuff on it. I remember St. Vitus, Minutemen, Husker Du and all that shit would be on it. When that tape arrived it was happy day to young Cole.
Man, I was a MS hayseed too. I remember working for my uncle hauling hay and listening to that tape all summer on a walkman while driving a tractor.
