OK, I've made mp3's from the tape and scanned both sides of the album
art/lyrics paper.

Here's a listing of the songs on the tape:
Side A
Ripples
Power to Be Your Best
We're so Excited
Blue Busters

Side B
Apple II Forever
Breaking Through
Building the Future with You
Leading the Way

I would describe the music as upbeat disco from that era (~1987). It
grew on me as I made the mp3's and browsed thru the lyrics.

"We're so Excited" you'd recognize as a popular song called (I think)
"I'm so Excited".
"Blue Busters" as I mentioned is a modified version of "Ghost Busters".

Some sample lyrics:
Apple II Forever

Remember how we started
Not so long ago
A personal way to grow
Our dreams become reality
And now we're makin' history

Refrain:
Apple II Forever
Making life better and better
Apple II forever and ever
Bringing the rainbow to you
Apple II forever.

Blue Busters

Something strange stinking up your desk?
Wo can you call?
Blue Busters!

We ain't afraid of no blue
We ain't afraid of big blue.

OK, so now I'd like to share and preserve these gems.
It's about 35 megs total. I only have dialup, and 28.8 at that. I don't
have access to binary newsgroups. What I could do is send the images
and mp3's as email attachments over a period of several days, or upload
them via ftp.

I'd like to send them to one or more people who can see that they are
archived somewhere for the enjoyment of Apple II enthusiasts today and
in the future.

Volunteers or suggestions on where I could send these files to achieve
those objectives?  Post here, that email address is a spam bucket.
