I believe they are called a reel to reel player.
Well, whatever they're called, I don't think you can even give these things away anymore...
It's called a reel to reel.
Hey I like your new profile pic, although I must admit the other pic was so damn cute..
OMG...this SOOOO reminds me of my father. He had tons of country music on his reels. They were like mixed tapes only much longer. If fact I am going to dig out his machine tonight and see if it still works. He even taped my sister and I singing to Conway Twitty (don't get me started on the ways I dislike that dipstick). Cool memories buddy.
My stepdad had one of these and before he married my mom, he brought it over to show a 5-year-old version of me. He fell asleep and I tried to "do it" myself and pretty much destroyed the whole thing. Oh, the memories ...
Cal: I'm not a Conway twitty fan myself. I hope you can get that thing working. Let me know if you do.Kenneth: Haha although I wouldn't think it was funny if I was your stepdad ;>)
I still have one of those also. can you believe I have a house full of old things that aren't even antiques?
So are you a collector, or do you just have a problem with throwing things away?
.... either way, if that keeps up you're gonna need to buy a bigger house...
Some things I have trouble getting rid of, but I periodically have a garage sale or have my daughter put them on ebay.
I wonder how much you could get for your thunderbird.
Not that you should sell it, I just wonder how much it would go for.
I got one from my father as a graduation gift from High School.You could, still then, get Reel to Reel tapes from the Columbia Music club, and I bought a few from American Airlines who used them for their in flight entertainment.I used mine to record TV shows when I was out (used a timer to turn on the TV and Recorder at once.) I still have all of the first year of Mork and Mindy.I also recorded a lot of my LPs on to tape to save space. After all, you could always find a reel to reel player, couldn't you?
