Rummaging around in my parents' house, I found an old cassette tape recorder that my parents had probably from around 1969 or so. With a tape in it. So, tape and recorder are over 40 years old! But it takes C batteries, so I popped four in, and the damned thing works. I just listened long enough this morning, to hear it working. It sounds like my parents reading to my brother or something. Man, they don't make things like they used to. Now I need to record the audio on my Mac or something. I also have some reel to reel audio. That's going to be a pain to digitize.
