I've been sorting through my thousands of old reel to reel tapes with the intention of digitizing some of them. I stumbled across some tapes that belonged to my Dad. These are *REALLY* old tapes and in fact they are made of paper (not mylar, polyester, acetate etc) with a magnetic coating on one side. The original tapes were made to be the same size as 8MM (close to 1/4") and even the metal spools are film spools. They all have cards saying whats on them and when they were recorded, about 15 in all from about april to october 1948. These tapes are also wound on the spools backwards compared to later tapes because the machine that plays them has the heads on the other side. I have the 1948 machine also but I have to replace all the capacitors in it to make it play. I already rebuilt it mechanically. Its going to be fun to play these.

I've mentioned that heartbreaking tale here before about how I had a rare RED vinyl copy of Aja (transparent red, even)....and sold it back to the record store in the 80s when I wanted to buy newer music.

You told me I could always find one again on eBay, but..........I could've had it in my collection. Free.
 
 
Oh well............I was 16 and stoopit.

 
That sucks. I still have both my red copy and my French gold demo copy....

Dunno why I hate dill so much...actually I don't mind it in soups, but in cold foods? Yuk.

 
Well when the end times come and we are raiding the grocery for supplies, you can have every jar of sweet pickles there. I'll take all the dills, Can I have the spicy pickled beans too? I'd like a bloody mary with my apocalypse
