the cd player skips a lot. I'm not sure if it's the player or the cd's i've used in it (some of those cd's skip on my laptop and in the truck too).
and i haven't used the tape player(s) in YEARS.
while home this past weekend, i rummaged around for some of my old cassette tapes. i found a small zippered case, and a few other rogue tapes. there are more at home, but i ran of time with the search.
when i got home late this afternoon, i pulled out a tape and gave it a whirl. and guess what, … it WORKS. the sound is crap, as expected, but it works. it plays. it plays at the correct speed.
i might have to check out the thrift store next time for some other tunes …
