Default Re: Archive of tapes - Reel to Reel and Cassette.

Here'e one I've not seen anywhere else: a C30 Type I cassette called The Professional Tape by Professional Magnetics Ltd. of Leeds.

This dates from 1984.

Our school had a little "bookshop" in a box room that was open in break times, and I was delighted when the elderly master who ran it announced in assembly one day that the shop had got hold of a large box of brand new cassettes and they would be sold at a mere 50p each - exactly my weekly pocket money! I bought the first one and can still remember that it fitted in my blazer pocket perfectly and the excitement of getting it home to try some recordings. The word "professional" appealed to a 11-year-old, conjuring up images of a recording studio, and Bodie and Doyle of course.

It performed rather well, and still does.
