Default Remember cassettes???

So I was just digging around in the closet looking for something, when I came across this..



Who knew I even still had a CASSETTE!! Much less a New Kids on the Block cassette, haha!!!

I don't know why, but that moment made me think of the time I found my mom's 8 Track when I was 8. I'm totally saving this tape to show my children what was around before iPods (or whatever is "in" at the time).

OMG it had to be the New Kids on the Block, too!
It's probably the best cassette tape you could've unknowingly kept for years.
:P

<sigh> . . . I've just listened to Handel's Messiah on two cassettes - it's the only copy we own; we love the recording taped off the air some years ago. Had to listen on a small boom box that is the only working cassette player left in the house. Did I ever feel out of it finding side one of four, figuring out if it had been properly rewound, etc., etc.

Goal is to ditch all cassettes and VHS tapes and replace, all at once, every component of my TV and sound system. Scheduled when we repaint/re-plaster the living room this Spring. I can't wait for all the old stuff to be gone, but suffer at the thought of all the recordings I love that will be lost.

I even remember 78s and got rid of the last of them a year ago to a collector. I have a chest in my livingroom full of cassettes and I do have a player that plays them as well as CDs. I'm quaint and archaic, I guess.

Yes this old guy remembers....and records.....33 and 45.....and 4 and 8 track...

the coolest was using the cassette recorder microphone next to the radio to record the top 100 songs of the year...shutting down at the commercials so as not to waste tape.....good times

think I'll grab my i-pod shuffle and go for a walk, then come home and throw my i-pod on the dock and choose from over 5,000 songs.....good times

While I was writing this, I was listening to my ipod. I believe I changed the song every couple of seconds until I got to a song I really wanted to listen to.

I still have all my cassettes. I'm not getting rid of them. There's some good stuff in my collection. I still listen to them in the car.

I don't have an I-Pod, I'm the only one in my family who doesn't own one.

The first cassette I had was "Guitar Man" by Bread, I loved that song.

Gary I used to record off the radio as well, especially the top 100 of the year.
