Christmas is just around the corner! Things can get pretty busy around here, so if you have tapes, movies, etc. to be transferred as Christmas gifts, now is the time to get them to us! Don't forget about gift certificates as well. Those are great if you don't know quite what to get for that hard to purchase for loved one/friend!

We will also be closing for the holidays to be with family beginning on December 21st and will reopen on January 7th. If you have anything that needs to arrive before Christmas the cut off date from the Post Office is -

USPS Media Mail - December 14th

USPS Ground - December 14th

USPS 1st Class - December 20th

USPS Priority - December 20th

USPS Priority Express - December 22nd*

If we ship through FedEx or UPS and additional charge will be added. It's cheaper to ship to a business with these two rather than a residental address.

*Extra charge will be incured

We have a box of bootleg/truck stop tapes that need to go. There is some good stuff in here - Beatles, CCR, Hollies, etc.! Over 50 tapes. These have not been tested. There might be one or two that are broken at the splice. If you're in the States, we're asking $40 and the includes s/h. Outside the US, email for shipping rates.

Dancing SantaDon't forget that Christmas is just around the corner! We've got our Christmas tapes up. It seems like Christmas commercials and store displays come earlier and earlier each year. Saw Christmas commercials even before Halloween was here and some stores already had their Christmas stuff up in July!

We want to also remind you that the next couple of months are our super busy months especially with player repair and tape transfers. So if you have transfers that you want to do for Christmas presents or players purchased or serviced for Christmas gifts, get them in now! We close to be with family a few days before Christmas until after the new year. We stop shipping packages to arrive for Christmas the week before unless you request and pay for Express shipping.

We are putting up some tuned-up tapes that we were selling at a recent show. All the tapes have had the metallic splice replaced. Some have new Win-Gib foam pads and some have like new used foam pads. The felt pads have only been replaced if needed. All of these tuned-up tapes will come with a 30 day warranty.

We've stated this many times and it's on our website in multiple places, please make sure the shipping info. you have on PayPal is correct when using this form of payment!!! We can not stress this enough. If you've recently moved or moved some time ago, please make the change to your PayPal account. If your package is miss delivered or returned to us because you haven't made the change or given us the correct shipping address (don't assume that because it's on your package we will use that one because we get packages all the time that have been shipped from a third party with their shipping info.), you will be responsible for any extra charges to get the package to you.

Christmas is just around the corner! If you're thinking about having your 8-track tapes (audio) or VHS tapes (video) transferred to CD/DVD as gifts for Christmas, now is the time to get them to us! We have a lot going on in the months before Christmas. We also close down just before Christmas to be with family so any last minute transfers will incure rush convenience fee.

We are changing up our page with the tapes we have for sale. We have eleminated some of the lists and combined them into one list. Some of the list categories are still there. Some of the prices have been lowered. On "The List" we will be putting up 300-400+ tapes every couple of weeks. When the next list goes up, those tapes that haven't sold, will come off and a new list of 300-400+ tapes will go up. The ones that didn't sell may or may not come back up for sale again so if you see something grab it while you can! The Christmas tapes are back on the list temporarily. With Christmas just around the corner, time to get those tunes started!

When sending tapes or players for repair/tune up please do not use household items, clothing, diapers, etc. to pack with! Bubble wrap, newspaper, foam, etc. work great! NO packing peanuts! They can get stuck in your tape or player and cause more damage (not to mention a pain to deal with!).

If you're sending a player in for repair/tune-up, be sure to pack it well!!!! Pack it as if it were an egg that might be broken. Lots and lots of large bubble wrap. If it has removeable knobs, remove them or cover them so that they won't be broken if the box is handled by a gorilla! Put insurance on the package. If you're not sure how much to put on, put at least $100. We can't be responsible for poorly packaged items!

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

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!

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 CST . 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 (817-789-6881) during business hours and we'll work something out. Thanks for your understanding!

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.

Just need to make a clarification on the tapes we sell. The tapes that we put on the list, unless otherwise stated, 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.

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.

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.

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.

 candycane line

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!!!

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.
