I was pleased with my reel to reel recorder. It was four tracks which was good, as tapes were expensive. More tracks, less tapes needed, that was my reasoning. My source of music was the radio. Radio Luxembourg fading in and out with lots of crackles. Or Forces Requests on the BBC. Or occasional Pop programmes. Very occasional. I hadn't thought it through, the source of my recordings, so the quality was poor. But I didn't mind, It was music, my music and I stuck with my reel to reel enlivened by a transistor radio and pirate stations until the age of relative affluence caught up with me. Eventually it became an amp for my boyfriend's guitar. But I never bought a cassette.
