Home taping is where its at. Cassette tapes are cheap, universal music media. I guess CDR is good too, but tape is so enjoyable. Its analog and everyone knows thats better. I can get Fuji type II 90-min. cassettes for just over one dollar each!& They aren't particularly random-access I guess, but I like the way they have sides. I like the way the tape and the plastic smells too. I like the feeling of accomplishment when you repair a messed-up cassette.
