24:49 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I will be presenting the audio of a cassette tape from my collection. It’s a way to help motivate me to digitize more of my archives.

A tape just labeled “W”, from my childhood. This was the kind of tape that would be used over and over again, with various layers bleeding through. It starts with data saves from my home computer, which would have to be from 1981 at the earliest, but other parts of the tape seem to be older, possibly from the late 1970s.

Notes: (0:00) TI-99/4A data saved to audio cassette, (3:34) weird musical tones, (4:05) fan sound, (4:38) tongue clicking horse sound effects and whistling, (5:33) more TI-99/4A, (6:27) Frank’s time travel story, (15:10) TV (speed corrected), (16:02) classical music (edited), (18:47) TV, (18:55) Ronald McDonald has been fired, (19:28) songs (edited), (21:19) The Hobbit (edited).
