Retired The Media

Newer Older

I am cleaning out my home office, and in the bin today went the music of my high school and college years-- my carefully honed collection of cassette music (which has not seen light of day for the last 4 years or more).

They say that media does not last forever, and the lifetime of a recorded audio cassette might be what 8, 10 year?

That one in the left column, 4th from the top, was recorded by by high school friend Larry in 1979! That combo of Who's Next and LIve at Leeds lasted 26 years,
