Kate's "8" Track Shack

Dan & Kathy Gibson - Just a small portion of the "Shack"

 

Welcome Fall Yall!

 

Hope everyone made it through Irma! Some of the customers who've checked in with us have said that they were okay. Just lots of rain and some power outages. This weather has been crazy! Our prayers go out to those who have been affected by both of these storms!

Fall

As someone put it, thee are only 102 sleeps until Christmas! Start thinking now about ordering gift certificates, making CD/DVD transfers for Christmas gifts! Since we shut down for a week or so before Christmas and it's a very hectic time, it's better to get it done now! Don't procrastinate!

For those of you who may be having problems connecting to our email address when you click on the " email us" or "contact us" links, you can use sales@katestrackshack.com to email us.

We will be giving up our home phone within the next month. The best way to contact us is through email. If you do need to reach us, you may call 817-789-6881. If we can't get to the phone, it will go to voicemail. Leave us a message and we'll return your call as quickly as we can. Thanks!

We are adding a a couple of new items to our repair supplies - 10' and 50' rolls of 7/32" metallic sensing foil. This is the size that was used back in the day. We have gotten a supplier for new stock. The cost will be the same as the 1/4" & 3/16" rolls.

Fall

We also are making some cool 8-track adapter/converters that you can use to play your music from your ipod, phone, etc. Very cool!!! Every player is different so run it through the channels until you get the best sound from your adapter.

We added a new category called Tapes You Refuse To Buy. It's like one that we had before, but different name. The tapes on this list are $.75 ea. A lot are tapes no one has bought in a long time or are duplicates. Take a look and please buy them!!!! ;)

Fall

In talking with one of our customers, he had mentioned that he has a friend that owns an AM radio station and had mentioned us on air to his dj friend. The station is all digital (we won't hold that against them ;) ) but it's pretty cool! The station is www.i1430.com and their facebook official page is www.facebook.com/i1430. Be sure to check them out!

Fall

 

We'd also like to remind you that although we are mainly an internet business, we do have hours that we operate our business - 9-5, M-F. We love talking with you on the phone, but durning business hours only please. If you need to pick something up or drop something off, give us a call during business hours and we'll work something out. Thanks for your understanding!

Fall

We've had quite a few orders that have not been paid for. We understand things happen and we're willing to work with you, but if you're not able to pay for your order, please let us know so that we can put the tapes back on the list so others have the opportunity to buy them. Thanks!

As a reminder, we require delivery confirmation on all US packages. Most International packages usually have some sort of tracking number. This is for your benefit as well as ours. Insurance is optional. We can't be responsible for packages that are lost, stolen or damaged in shipping unless the package is insured. It is highly recommended on larger packages that might tend to get damaged in shipping. If your package is insured and something happens, we will be more than happy to work with you and the post office to rectify the situation.

Fall

Just need to make a clarification on the tapes we sale. The tapes that we put on the list, unless otherwise stated (Tuned-up tapes), are tested to make sure that they play, but have not been tuned-up (new pads/splices). These tapes can be tuned-up before they ship for an additional $2 per tape. For those that like to do their own repairs, we also sell the repair supplies needed to to that. When you place your order for tapes, if you want the tapes tuned-up before they ship, please let us know. We try to ask, but sometimes we forget.

Fall

We have gotten in some new repair supplies and will be selling them individually and also in kits. We will be changing up the kits a little bit and adding another kit. You can find out more about them here.

Here is an interview we did recently with a local tv station. We've done several interviews with Mike Cassetelluci. He's a great guy! We had a lot of fun doing it. To see the video click here.

Fall

Just a friendly reminder that we are mainly an internet business and don't have a physical storefront per say. We try to answer all emails as quickly as possible but if we don't, we promise we will! We may just be doing things with our family. Weekends are especially busy for us so don't abandon hope that we aren't getting back to you.

We have lots of accessories and repair supplies to keep those 8-tracks, 4-tracks, etc. going for a long time to come. If you don't like to repair your own tapes, we offer that service.

If your car has an 8-track player you need to have one of our cool license plate frames! You can see what they look like on our accessories page (down at the bottom of the page).

If you have any questions, please email us.

If you are paying with PayPal, please make sure that the address you have on file with them is the correct address. If you've moved and haven't changed it or haven't given us your correct address, your package could be delayed. If it is sent back to us because of an incorrect address, there will be a charge for the return shipping from the post office as well as the original shipping costs.

Fall

Just a reminder! Each order must be paid for separately! Also, if you place an order for tapes and then decide you don't want them, please let us know so we can put them back on the list. There may be someone else wanting the tapes you don't want.

Thanks for your understanding!!!

Fall

We will be glad to try and fill special orders or search for tapes for you, but there will be an additional charge added for this service. Also, please be patient as there are thousands of tapes to look through and we get tapes in all the time!

Thanks!

8tracks radio is a free player from Google Play, Apple's App Store and the Window Store. Whatever your music tastes, you can find it here. Click on the icon below to take go to their web page. Login or sign up and then do a search for k8track. When you get to our mix page, go down on the left side and click on the logo under "Mixes by k8track." Enjoy listening to some of the songs we enjoy on 8-track while you're browsing the web site. To go back to the web site, click on the "by k8track" (for some reason the link for Kate's Track Shack doesn't seem to work) in the bottom right corner. You can then see the web link at the top left. Let us know what you think.


Eight Track Stereo by Blue Boxen, LLC is a very cool player for the iPhone or iPad! It looks like an 8-track player and your music looks like an 8-track cart. I think it costs something like $4.99, but well worth it just for the cool factor! It's not available for Androids.
