    Default Gap In-Store Playlists 1992-2006

    I've started a blog where I have several complete playlists for Gap stores from 1992 to 2006 (when I worked there). I used to have almost every month from those 14 years in the form of the paper inserts that came with the CDs/cassettes but lost the majority of them in a move in 2006.

    Working at Gap exposed me to so many different kinds of music and I want to recreate as much as I can on my computer.

    If anyone is able to add to them, whether from scans or photos of the Gap In-Store Playlists or even from memory, please let me know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    And if you have ANY questions about Gap music during this time period, just ask!

    One of the greatest benefits of being employed by Gap from 1992 to 2006 was the excellent and varied selection of music played in stores. Each month, Gap locations would receive the current 4-hour tape or CD to play throughout the month. Music often went along with the seasons and clothing collections.

    During my time with Gap, I collected the monthly in-store playlists that would come with each tape or CD, so that I could know the artists and songs playing. These were paper inserts that arrived with the tapes/CDs and contained the names of the artists, the song titles, and even the specific mixes. I really enjoyed trying to recreate the Gap in-store playlists for each month from those years. When I still had the paper playlists for almost every month, I slowly took my time buying songs and CDs here and there, gradually making playlists on my computer.

    However, in a move in 2006, I lost the box which contained the dozens of Gap in-store playlists, which was very disappointing. In 2010, I luckily found copies of almost twenty duplicates that I had saved, so I was able to restart from there, and those actual playlists can be seen in several months on here from 1999 to 2005.

    Because of this site, in February 2017, I was fortunate to meet another former Gap Employee who has shared almost three dozen playlists from 1993 to 2000 so far, which has been incredibly helpful. In October 2017, a different former Gap Employee shared with me two dozen playlists from 2000 to 2003 for Gap, GapBody, GapKids and babyGap. However, dozens more playlists are still needed.

    My main goal with this site is to be able to hopefully reach out to others who have also saved the Gap In-Store Playlists from June 1992 to February 2006 and that they will share them with me. While I have partially reconstructed many months' playlists from memory, I would love to have copies/scans of the actual full In-Store Playlists for each month.

    The larger goal with this site is to celebrate the phenomenon that was the Gap from those years, throughout the clothing, commercials, music, and overall cultural impact.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! If you have any Gap In-Store Playlists from 1992 to 2006, please contact me:
