I just threw out a bag full of old (like there would be new ) tapes that I have had since I was a teen and in college school. It pained me to do it, but it had to be done. I have some on CD, but lots I still don't. Saw lots of stuff i haven't listened to in years, but I only have one tape player and it's covered with dust and i don't have room in my entertainment center for it. It's nice that we don't have to deal with wow and flutter these days.
