My husband bought a small device a few years ago and he transferred all our tapes to the hard disk of the computer.

@hereandthere It is an inexpensive device and now all our old songs are stored inside our computer.

It's good recalling the past gadgets we used sometimes. "Torn" is what I'll remember in Nat King Cole

@ridingbet mother likes small transistor radios because she can listen to them when wakes up but don't feel like getting up yet.

I have already discarded all my casette tapes because they already have molds. It's now CDs we play on our old component.

and the question would be, would they play, and if you have a working tape deck. i mean, it might be in good condition, but the tape deck would eat it! hahaha!

I had also seen my father packed his collection of old cassette tapes a few days ago in a plastic bag. I am not sure what he's going to do with those...

My parents still have that old stereo system with wood . . . is it literally a big piece of furniture (almost like a coffin)? The stereo is actually still good, except for the record player part - but no one uses it and I don't know why my parents keep it around. It makes a good table at the side of their living room .

i don't know what happened to ours, but yes, the stereo system was 3 pieces - one long piece in the middle that you lift the lid, and two speakers on each side.

@hereandthere My parents' stereo is just one big piece . . . the stereo on both sides and there was a lid in the middle to lift (like a coffin).
