Dr. Zhivago "On The Edge of Time"

Betcha By Golly Wow - The Stylistics

I have been collecting music since I was old enough to say, gime to me.

My mother bought records and my brother had a friend who worked at a local radio station as a DJ

so as I grew up the first time I heard my own voice on a reel to reel recorder I was 8 years old.

I had fun recording people talking, singing and telling stories. But when I started using cassette recorders to tape radio music on audio cassette. A friend of mine recorded our Jr. High School band and put us on a vinyl record. I once had over 100 records of sound effects from The Production Source. But my brother got rid of them for me without telling me. I wanted to keep them. I have been recording music forever. I don't have everything. I stopped doing this recording thing years ago when radio started playing garbage. The times that were are not here now. The music I liked then was then. Good thing I can still play older recorded music any time I want.

That REALLY annoys me when someone throws MY stuff out.

Yes. Those valuable commercial sound effects for movies, tv commercials and such were irreplaceable. I managed early on to copy just a few of the effects and songs on audio cassette. Now it's a matter of being able to play back some of these later after the cassettes have been setting in storage for decades. The man who gave them to me died a very long time ago. He was a mentor of sorts. He knew I was a music lover and he often shared his Polka music. I don't even listen to that kind of music these days. But he was quite fond of it.

The sooner you get the tapes transcribed, the better. I understand cassette tape can deteriorate.
