This is like my first time using the cassette decks here too, so, learning curve tonight as well with everything, OH WHAT FUN
  Thu. 10/18/18 3:12am Jaz-Paz:

Rough around the edges but kudos to any DJ who boldly opens with Sigue Sigue Sputnik.
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:12am Andrew S:

clean heads and a good deck and cassettes last. I have about 1k jazz cassettes from the 80s that i squirreled away for a few decades and ive been playing them the last few years and they sound great to my ears. They lasted longer thn i thought i would
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 3:13am Nick the Bard:

I'm used to doing all digital, but of course I figure it's like, ok, let's do this authentic tonight, so, yeh (it's all new buttons and stuff to press and toggle)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 3:15am Nick the Bard:

I also brought my cd/cassette player as a backup in case things really start going screwy (yay more stuff to lug home too)
  Thu. 10/18/18 3:20am Jaz-Paz:

There's no cassette deck in the studio? I feel bad I've neglected my Tascam deck. You may have inspired me to get it hooked up and working this week.
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:20am Andrew S:

more rudimentary down there than one might think if you have to bring your own cassette player. donations now more than ever
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:21am Andrew S:

youd think a million bucks would get you a tape p,ayer, i see them at the sally anne every day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 3:21am Nick the Bard:

There's two in here, but it's acting all weird, but THAT'S more because I'm not used to using these things and I kind of forgot to ask about how to deal with these things
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 3:23am Nick the Bard:

like, the first one is acting weird, the second one is going fine, so, yeh, we're going kind of obtuse tonight for a bit, maybe. Don't think we're THAT backwards techwise, it's more on me :P
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 3:25am Fuzzy:

Keith is sweatin'.
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:27am Andrew S:

can almost smell him
  Thu. 10/18/18 3:28am Jaz-Paz:

Nick, just go with it. Experimental tape collage. I love how I can hear the tape being chewed up over the air. Now THIS is what I remember about tapes especially ones you loved and listened to the most.
  Thu. 10/18/18 3:30am ?:

cassettes my favorite medium!
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:31am Andrew S:

rememebre spinning them with your fingers and trying to untwine them

putting a pencil in the spools
  Thu. 10/18/18 3:34am Jaz-Paz:

Poor man's rewind. Gotta conserve every drop of juice in the Walkman batteries.
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:36am Andrew S:

auto reverse was a revolution because actuakky taking the tape out manually was exhausting
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:37am Andrew S:

does anyone know what dolby menas? I know i can loik it up, being at a computer and all. but thats no fun. Dolby was a big thing whatever it was
  Thu. 10/18/18 3:46am Jaz-Paz:

Dolby was for noise reduction. I don't know the science but in my experience it was better left off on cheap units that supposedly supported it. It only sounded better to me if it was good quality tape on a decent deck. Otherwise it sounded awful. Like rolling off the entire top end.
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:48am Andrew S:

what about chromium dioxide? That was the actual tape right? Not the recording? I dont know shit abou this stuff. I just remember having suitcases full of metal tapes in the 80s
  Thu. 10/18/18 3:49am power turle:

wuuuaah this show is so eerie. its like i know all these songs from before i'd heard of music. it's like the early 90s culture industry lef6t a sleeper cell in my brain
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:49am Andrew S:

they tried to make them hard to steal at kmart by putting them in long plastic boxes but you just snapped the bottom of those and the tape slid out
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:50am Andrew S:

tapes weer indeed killing the industry like those stickers said, if you collected them the way we did
  Thu. 10/18/18 3:50am P-90:

“Kidz Klassiks”?
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:53am Andrew S:

a tape was a disposable piece of shit like a cd but it did the trick
  Thu. 10/18/18 3:53am P-90:

That analog needle-in-groove romanticism of the vinyl worshippers
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:53am Rob Gee:

"Home taping is killing music!"
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:54am Andrew S:

yeah thos stickers
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:54am Andrew S:

i think they had a skull and crossbones
  Thu. 10/18/18 3:54am Jaz-Paz:

The oxides are the secret sauce of blended metal that distinguished the different manufacturers and quality of tape. There's a very notable difference in cheap stuff and everything else.
  Thu. 10/18/18 3:56am P-90:

In my day we tried to stay with TDK. Than everyone tried Maxell for a while, then I think we pretty much went back to TDK...
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 3:58am Andrew S:

i reember both when taoing songs off th radio, you had to press play and record at the same time. But i didnt and dont know any dfiference between quality. i
  Thu. 10/18/18 4:01am P-90:

Now flashing back to the cassette stage of evolution of life on Earth... recovered memories of dipping the Q-tip in the solvent (alcohol?) and wiping the amber goo off the playback head... mmm, that smell...
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 4:01am Andrew S:

sony was to portable cassette players like iphones are now
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 4:01am Andrew S:

man i nrmemebr that. dip the q tip and scrape it around and it would pull all this black goo off the heads
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 4:03am Andrew S:

they came out with those yellow sportsman i think they were supposed to be water resistant, they were like carrying around a colostomy bag
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 4:06am Andrew S:

i had every banzai cassette in the 80s or nearly every one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 4:07am Nick the Bard:

Best portable I had was an RCA that actually played the tapes at the correct speed no matter how low the batteries got, not sure what year it was from though (was using it around 2007/08 I know)
  Thu. 10/18/18 4:07am P-90:

In the eighties I dated a girl who wore a colostomy bag with a cassette player actually built in. OK, no I didn’t
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 4:07am Nick the Bard:

Growing up it was all about the Sounddesign stuff though
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 4:11am Andrew S:

i dont know what that means. I just remember having briefcases full of metal tapes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 4:11am Nick the Bard:

Sounddesign was like a budget brand of stereo stuff, but it was actually pretty decent quality
  Thu. 10/18/18 4:11am P-90:

Sony had the Walkman Pro, like a Walkman at a whole different level of quality in the components and performance. Journalists used them for interviews and stuff and musicians liked them to record rough demos on the fly, the way they used portable DAT recorders later on.
  Thu. 10/18/18 4:12am P-90:

Expensive though. For a Walkman.
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 4:14am Andrew S:

jmoney was no object back then
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 4:19am Andrew S:

I remember i was about 12 or 13 and metallica were playing they were nobodys they were the opening band before wasp and armrored saint nd playing pretty much in a big basemant. but i had to se them so my mom had a job at a bingo hall and we went ad stole all the money out of her cashbox so we could go and some extra to buy hash and acid. Thats why I am where I am today

this beats the hit out of heavy metal parking lot
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 4:28am Nick the Bard:

It's an actual tape put out to promote Can't Stop The Rock The Styrper Collection 1984-1991 (the tape itself is litterally called Limited Edition Words And Music"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 4:29am Nick the Bard:

had to flip the tape, oops (using the player I brought, no window on the tape deck)
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 4:31am Andrew S:

If only we could see them sitting around in theor yellow and black spandex

Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 5:46am jdaFromCologne:

somethings wrong with the audio? or just me?
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 5:47am Sem:

Getting brief drop-outs here as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 5:47am Nick the Bard:

No, I think the tape might have some mold in it
  Thu. 10/18/18 5:47am liXiviated life:

Audio problems?
It’s hard to tell
Avatar Thu. 10/18/18 5:47am Rocky Horror:

@Nick The Bard: I hear a buzz between the songs!!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 5:49am jdaFromCologne:

basically i hear just some faint noise with scratches…
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 5:49am jdaFromCologne:

back to normal now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 5:50am Nick the Bard:

Yeh, I think the tape itself was bad, and there's weirdness with the wire i had to use to get the cd player into the board
  Thu. 10/18/18 5:50am liXiviated life:

I’ll always miss Cynthia
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 10/18/18 5:50am Nick the Bard:

Like if I turn it the wrong way it goes all staticy
