My Tape Museum

My entire life, I've been collecting tapes and media. Usually, someone sells off their collection because they don't have a machine anymore, or things are just collecting space. When I receive a new tape, or collection, I go through each item and decide if it is worth keeping, or if the media is destined to be just reused. My criteria for keeping an item is very simple, is the material interesting and well recorded? Or does the material have some historical significance? Anything of historical significance could be radio broadcasts, band demos, band master tapes, audio letters, etc. My library is quite large now, and I've been searching for an effective way to share this material with people. I'll be populating this page as time progresses, and I get to transfer the material. Please Enjoy!
