Default '80s music- Audio Cassettes For Free?

Anyone want my collection of audio cassettes from the '80s? I have 9 drawers, each drawer has about 10-20 cassettes.

I am selling my deck and have no need for the tapes.

Each tape was carefully recorded (by me) and they are mostly XLII or XLII-S (maxell) or TDK SA, a few metal tapes in there too.

I have no idea why anyone would want these but thought I'd ask. Pics available, just email me.

You pay shipping and I'll send the tapes, i'll send the tape holders too if you want those but they are not in great shape.

Do your own version of "I Love the '80s Strikes Back"?

Maybe you could send them here:

It would be a small shame to kill all those better quality tapes though. The XL II-s was pretty good. I still have ten of them sitting unopened from ten years ago.

20lbs media mail from 92130 (SD Cal) to 05405 (Burlington VT) is $7.84, so even 2 boxes should be <$16.00 assuming I don't send the wooden cassette holders that they are resident within.

media mail prices and restrictions

Its would be a shame to toss these.

Many were made with 3-head Onkyo direct from analog LP, and I'm sure they are mostly all good for re-recording.

There is a good assortment and you can make fun of my musical tastes all you want.

I'll take them.

I try not to make fun of anyone's musical taste. I have seen too many looks of "What the hell is this?" when people see my collection.

I'm not sure what has happened. I did email you. I will try again. If you don't hear from me today, try dropping me an email at dmelichar@h0tmail.c0m.

Thanks.
