Get that stuff onto CDs!

I don't know how long cassette tape technology will linger, but the
tapes themselves are far from immortal- my 20 year old tapes are
stretched to distortion or brittle and breaking.  I went out to buy new
blank tapes to copy some, and discovered that the many local outlets
that used to sell them no longer carry any: blank tapes are now a
"specialty" item, which is not a good sign.  Also, I have been finding
audio tapes of things like the 3 cassette Gielgud M4M selling for 25
cents at yard sales.   Obsolescence looms.
