So many times, I got out my mini-Philips head screwdriver and opened up a cassette to detangle the tape and reassemble. It almost always worked. I LOVED cassettes.

i don't have ipod or phone either, Doug. but did buy one of those USB cassette players to play old tapes. Chris Forsyth's PEEESSEYE had a six-tape monster which was just too essential... as for killing music, of course downloading is supposedly killing music now, and it's the same corporations complaining about it!

When I worked in an office that couldn't get WFMU in any format, my iPod was vital to filling in the gap. I downloaded FMU archives and threw them onto the iPod, then listened whenever. So much better than listening to other commuters or coworkers.
Avatar Fri. 4/10/15 9:22am chromaphone:

Love the sound of cassettes. So warm and inviting. Been digitizing a slew of recordings of another fav radio show from a while back and the warmth seems to translate decently to CD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/10/15 9:23am Hugo:

Tapes are still big in Africa. I have a small collection from Kenya and Malawi. Back when I was living in Thailand, cassettes were the medium. CDs were quite expensive, but things have changed since then. I do have an Ipod, too. Anyone remembering the minidisc recorder? I have two of those.

i suspect if i lived to 100 i'd want to kill people too. as for Richie, Brian, it was a good innings but of course it's all quite ludicrous the way they're carrying on about it over here, like he was the most important person who ever lived. i mean, even Bradman was just a guy who hit a ball with a stick

Good morning Doug - I still have a lot of cassettes - mostly airchecks of old , pre archive WFMU shows. I also used to record a lot, and have a pair of binaural mics-in-the headphones that I could walk around town with and capture an eerie, "you are there" quality with.

Listening to an old bargain cassette of Tony Bennett's 50s - 60s hits on my Easter ride outa town...when it suddenly occurred to me,"Oh, there's probably a Dolby button on this (very infrequently used) player."

yeah that whole episode is just wrong. it's even worse than the description. I don't remember him being arrogant so much as the whole thing having a garish slapstick vibe, with Columbo being tailed by bumbling assistants and everyone running into each other constantly. And of course, there's a twist halfway through, in total violation of the formula, which is fine as an idea, but doesn't work at all in practice.

We had Lou Jacobi over once for Rosh Hashana dinner - my parents had met him at the train station in Baltimore

That was great..Steinski: perfect partner/froster for the documentary...except the doc lets Frank say "fuck" here and there, which makes me tremble and scream like a teenager at the Paramount .

Re: Frank and "fuck," my brother and I took my parents to a Frank concert at Universal Studios around the time of "New York, New York." Opening act was a comedian well known from appearances on daytime and nighttime TV talk shows. He was frigging filthy! At that point the hypocrisy of adult rules about polite language was never clearer to me.

Eugene Chadbourne's daughter used to babysit mine. He cooked us Tagine chicken once.

Jim Henson used to be our paper boy. He delivered the Washington Star in the early 1960s to our house.

I once briefly lived in a Brooklyn loft on the same floor as Lydia Lunch and Jim Thirlwell

Did you used to live in Hyattsville, Doug?!

Glad to have your ears, annie.

Goshdangitt but I do adore the horns on this track. So melancholy.

We always claimed JH as a Hyattsvillain, but maybe he moved there as an adult.
