Yes Freddie the video came out awesome. I had issues trying to post mine to YouTube and that's why I hadn't posted it. Sure was awesome meeting everyone and very cool that this was the largest Midwest Meet we ever had. Wish a few other members could have made appearances but maybe next time. Thanks for everything Mr and Mrs Oldskool :thumbsup:

I still don't know how I ended up with two of those tapes. I got lucky and found the one you have now Scott and knew what I had to do with it. Told y'all you'd enjoy it. :-D

Thanks for the great video. It's fantastic seeing other people get so excited about these old tech devices - I don't feel like a weirdo now!!! :-) Only kidding, I still feel weird!

That was such a good time! Thanks a lot for having the Sony 9000 in the drawing, I really do love it and it is my #1 boombox at work right now. Sounds great!

I'm glad you're enjoying it and that it went to a good home. It was getting lost in the shuffle of my collection and I knew it would be the right thing to do. It's not all about profits and money, it's about the hobby and sharing the love.

However... Don't think I've gone delusional and will start giving away my heavy hitters. :lol:

Right on....  

 

House is not necessarily to everyone's liking, so I'm glad to hear you're liking it....  :cool:

 

I need to rustle up my copy of that tape and give it another listen, too. :stereo:

John, I want to thank you. You're how I got the tape in the fist place. I definitely plan on swinging through Florida and if you can't find your copy, I have the other original. :-)

And of course, it's still awesome. :thumbsup:
