    All I ever recorded were theme tunes and the odd track from TOTP
    seemed to wait for ages for Carl Douglas Kung fu fighting and during, the dog started barking at the door when the line “chopping them up “ was sang.
    can’t help but do a little woof at that point when I ever hear it.
    also loved to re-listen to the six million dollar man theme.

      We had our first video recorder in our house in 1983/4, I used to record top of the pops on tape from the headphone socket on my tv to the line in on my old cassette recorder, it was about a year later I realised I was only recording in mono.

        Reel-to-reel tapes were the original kind of audio magnetic tape recordings, and while they are still considered to have the highest sound quality of all audio formats, their lifespan is limited. Reel-to-reel recordings, like cassette tapes and VHS cassettes, will degrade with time. It's better to have it in digital form. There are many ways how you can transform it, but the best would be to use a Screen Recorder for Perfect Captures, and save it on your PC or smartphone, so the quality remains the same even in 10+ years.
