Ant Music

Posted on Friday, May 17th, 2019

Dave!I am currently on my third round of decluttering my life at home. I'm trying to leave as little to deal with as I can once I'm dead, and donating or trashing a lifetime of possessions is how I'm doing it.

One area I haven't worked on cleaning out is my office at work. But I'm having to make room for some new equipment, so I've been forced to go through decades of "stuff" to see what I can live without. I'm always worried to throw things out in case I need them one day, so this has been a massive ordeal. I've got junk piled everywhere!

Back in the late 80's and early 90's I had transitioned my music to CDs (compact discs), leaving me with loads of music on cassette tape that was just sitting in a box. Eventually I bought a small cassette player for my office so I could play them when I was working late or on weekends. The player died probably 25 years ago, but this morning I found the box of tapes...

Cassette Tapes!

And you know what's weird?

This is pretty much the same music I'm listening to today!

Adam and the Ants, Bowie, Prince, Thompson Twins, Duran Duran, Pet Shop Boys... same music, different decade!

Now it's a matter of going through everything to make sure I have a copy of it digitally. If not, I'll have to see if I can convert it. But how? Do they even sell cassette players any more?

Hope that yellow Walkman I found still works!

    Don’t you dare get rid of those! At least don’t give them away to charity or what not. I’m into cassettes. Very into cassettes. Let me know what you’d want.

    I have a box of cassettes too. I got a player for $5 at a yard sale, but need to get cables to see if it works. I also still have a box of 10 8 track tapes, but no player. I got them in the 70’s, The Stooges, MC5, Sex Pistols, Talking Heads, Patti Smith etc.
    You can get a new cassette player, B&H sells 3 of them, and they sell 2 cassette to mp3 converters.
    But looks like you are getting rid of them.
