Throwback Thursday - Recording Favorite Songs from the Radio

Do you remember listening to your favorite radio station with cassette recorder ready ... just to record your favorite songs when you came on?   I vividly remember doing this in the 1970's.   Pictured:  a 1972 cassette recorder ad.  I'd love to hear your memories in the comments, below.

I had so many mix-tapes, even in the 90's! It really doesn't seem like that long ago that I was always hovering over my boom-boxes play/record buttons to make sure that I didn't miss my favorite songs.Technology changes way too quickly!

Yes! I am super lucky I have an older car which still has a tape player. I made some darn good mix tapes.

I love U2 and loved Heart. I had their cassette tapes and used a walkman. :)

I loved mixtapes too ... and often listened to them on my Walkman. Back in the day. :-)

I had Paula Abdul's cassette and also used to record myself or the radio with my Talk Girl!
