Most of the cassettes contain OTR. However there is also a bunch with country
music and even a few pop songs. Probably some other odds and ends but nothing
of importance as far as I know. All the OTR can now be found on MP3 and/or CD
and most of the music is on CD also. I am saving the cassettes that have music
not yet on CDs. Jack

Cassettes of WHAT?! I may well be interested...I buy Sony cassette decks at
yard sales...and have a LOT of live-recorded cassettes (AFAIK/I HOPE!) of
my then-successful blues band from 1977-79! As long as I can acquire
cassette machines, I shall continue to do so!
Given the significant deterioration of my hearing (age-related plus two
MAJOR head injuries!), any defects in the "bandwidth" of cassette tapes
is effectively UNheard by me! In fact, I recorded many of my 78's onto
cassettes so I could play them on a not-permanently-installed cassette
deck set up (including small speakers) so that I could get 12V from
the "lighter 'jack'" in my work van...I still have a lot of those tapes...!
Given my MANY 78's, and my "less many" cassettes, I seem to be
assembling an "archive of obsolete audio formats"...the only exception
would be my several remaindered CD's of equally old material (on
Hindsight among other "labels!")
