Here I can help! Find a good used cassette deck with microphone inputs
(a lot of Sonys have them, as do other major brands)...a couple of mikes
with 1/4" plugs (often sold as "karaoke mikes") and a couple of small
mike stands (cheap at Radio Shack or wotever its called now) unless you
want to try duct-taping them in place.

I did this for about a year+1/2 (until some <expletive deleted> stole
the dommed mikes> and taped almost all my blues band's shows that way; I got
amazingly good quality from that set-up!
