How old do you have to be to have had an 8-Track player in your car? And how about one of those 45-rpm record players that pulled out from below the dash? This was once the only type of pre-recorded, portable music.

I've got an 8-track recorder/player on my editing desk right now, with VU meters and dual level-controls. And I use it every day! So how old must I be to even want to do that?

I learned the very useful and highly sought-after skill of being able to re-string by hand, 8-Track tapes that had gotten de-tracked (and they said it couldn't be done!). I never realized how many friends I had, until they discovered I could do this. Now, this is all a lost art and my talent is on the scrap heap. P.S.---I've got a quadraphonic 8-Track recorder that I think is a neater gadget than any of my newer toys and I got it for $2. at St. Vinnie's.

What a great concept... I never saw one of those in the UK... Would have been a bitch to balance a 2shilling (50cent in your case I guess) coin on the arm with a jumpy track though!!

And that's never a lost art if you remember it, one day we'll need these skills again, though maybe modified versions of them!
