I've been listening to my tapes again recently because my car has a tape deck. I've been playing a lot of ABB from 1996 (Knoxville, Nashville, etc). The jams they were doing during True Gravity back then were fantastic. The Grateful Dead 6-10-90 from Cal Expo has also been in heavy rotation, great Standing On The Moon. There is still something about listening to a tape though that I just love. I can't put my finger on it, perhaps its the hissing.

I have over 1000. Rarely play them anymore since cars come with Cd players. Too much great stuff to get rid of. Like John, I now listen in the backyard or garage.

I have only a cassette player in my truck, so I listen to them all the time. Mine are all homemade. Yep, they do wear out, but I've still got a couple or 3 hundred.

I still have a player in my truck that I listen to. I don't want to carry cd's in my truck because I would have to start locking it if I did. If someone wants to steal my cassettes they must need them more than I do.

I love the tapes. I had tons of Dead on tape back in college. Anyone remember Maxell points ?? Kind of like Camel Cash but you get Maxell stuff.

My car has a tape deck so I listen to them in there but I live a block from my train station so I can go days without driving. Jim , I have a bunch of those ABB summer 96 soundboards in my car also, great stuff. I think there's A True Gravity> St Stephen >True Gravity jam on the show from Alabama. I also was listening to a tape my brother acutally recorded from the last Warren and Woody show in 97. Check that one out if you can. You can pretty much tell Warren and Dickey are slugging it out through their guitars.

I remember getting sleeves of tapes from taper friends in college. It was like being a little kid on Christmas. The CD's and files are great now but you're right there was some sort of charm about tapes.

How have you been enjoying that show John? If I remember right, I made you a tape of the Orlando show from last year, so I think that's what you're talking about.

Since I don't have a CD burner (I know, I know) I often end up making tapes for people. My stereo makes good tapes, and others with cassette capability seem to enjoy them.

I still have some mix tapes I made in the 80s! They still sound good, too

I still have probably 200 or so assorted shows on tape just laying in a drawer or two. About half of those are The Dead and old Widespread Panic shows. Sometimes I want to just dump them but I just can't ...it sort brings back memories of old times and old technology. Quite a few are not even labeled or in cases so occasionally I'll pop in cassette just to see whats on it. If anyone out there has the ability to transfer one or two cool shows that I have to disc, give me a shout and I'll send 'em to you along with a few blank CD's...

Yep. Play the old ones and I still make new ones, usually of brand new vinyl. I play and make them on my vintage Pioneer CT-F7272. I also tape Little Steven's Underground sometimes.

I even have a Pioneer 8-Track player that records. I might just put Nirvana on 8 track.

And yes, I have cds and all the digital options as well. No caveman am I.

most of mine are traded Grateful Dead shows from my old tour days which I listen to in the van. could never part with them - too many memories...

tommars: not familiar with the Maxell points. I prefered TDK which seemed to sound better, last longer and not break so frequently!

I listen to a handful of cassettes: Some self-produced stuff my old guitar teacher made years ago and sold through his shop, and some obscure Woody Guthrie stuff that to my knowledge has never been released on CD. That's about it.

Oh, and when hunting for an audio book at my library or through an inter-library loan, I'll take the first format available, which is frequently cassette.

Oh my God, I hated that station. Wasn't it basicaly new wave? Didn't you have to have a haircut like this in order to listen?

In any event, I'm glad I'm not alone out there with my tapes!! My name is Jim and I'm a tape listener.

I remember WLIR. I think once a week they'd broadcast a show from My Father's Place. Still have tapes from those days and also scattered moments from WFMU.

Also have the 6/71 closing of the Fillmore with The Allmans, J Giles etc but I'm too afriad to even put that into a cassette deck. One of them already has a repair

Romeo Void
Hunters and Collectors
Wall of Voodoo
Skinny Puppy
Pigface
Monster Magnet
a ton of Grunge stuff......
Ministry
The Sisters of Mercy
Fear
The Meatmen
Kyuss
The Obsessed
St. Vitus
old hair bands
old Thrash Metal stuff
Suicidal Tendencies
Mr. Bungle
Concrete Blonde

and on and on and on.....

so thats the only way I can still hear them........

I still love my cassettes
