The mission of the San Francisco Disco Preservation Society is to collect, restore, digitize, preserve, and present historic audio and video recordings pertaining to DJ and nightclub history in San Francisco and internationally, as well as educate, inform, and entertain the public and future generations through its archives, public events, screenings, and online access to its resources.
We are always looking for rare DJ mixtape collections on reel-to-reel, cassette, and DAT tapes, to preserve and archive to digital for future generations. If you have a collection that you would like to donate, please contact us. We also borrow tape collections to digitize, and promptly return, if you would prefer to keep your collection. If you have tapes to donate, or loan, please read our tape submission requirements.
We are a not-for-profit organization. All costs to operate our archives comes out of our pocket. Your donation helps us maintain our vintage tape decks to transfer tapes, covers the shipping cost of shipping loaned mixtape collections back and forth, allows us to buy blank CD-Rs needed to digitize tapes, and allows us to upgrade our studio to do top notch digital transfers. If you enjoy our archives, please consider making a donation. Thank you!
