One Of My Last Conversations With An 8-track Player

8-track: "Nights in white satin..."

Curmudgeon:
"Sheets?"

8-track
: "Never reaching the end"

Curmudgeon:
"Uuhhh, sure."

8-track
: "Letters I've written"

Curmudgeon:
"Yaaawwwn"

8-track: "Never meaning to send"

Curmudgeon:
"Yaaaaawwwwwnnnn"

Curmudgeon: "ZZZZZZzzzzzz......"
.
.
.
8-track: "Breathe deep, the gathering gloom"

Curmudgeon:
"Hello? Whuzzat?"

Curmudgeon: "ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz......"

You had a conversation with an eight-track? Why?!

Erica said...

I actually still have eight-tracks, and a working eight-track unit to play them on. Pretty cool for a 31 year-old, eh?

I still stick to CDs for the most part, though sometimes I like hitting the record collection and spinning some Frankie Valli tunes.

To be fair, my phonograph player, eight-track, receiver and tape deck are all part of the same unit (more than 25 years-old, as if you couldn't figure that out).

S.M.,
Takes one back, no?

Snay,
In my head. Only in my head.

Erica,
I got rid of the eight tracks when cassettes came out. Too much trouble. But I still have records too. Throwing them on is like a time capsule. Fun to do now and then though!
My turntable and receiver were made in 1971. :) They still work great. But the tape player is only maybe ten years old.
