The Tapes

Box Of Cassette Tapes

I recently found this old box of cassette tapes that I recorded when I was a child.  The tapes were found at the bottom of a cardboard box my father packed away when we moved to my second home back in the 1980s.

Clearly, my father kept nearly everything of my childhood, regardless of how insignificant. Perhaps in hopes that one day I might come across these relics of my childhood for some much needed nostalgia.  Or perhaps it was something more; an innate ability to let go of the past.

  1. Wow memories,can still remember playing these record tapes in my teens. It was great that your dad stored them for you.

  2. You have a great and proud dad. He kept the record of your conversation. I can feel that he loves you so much.

  6. Oh wow your pic really took me back to the nineties. Life was so simple and straight forward. Good old days.

  7. Really cute interactions. I feel like listeners can totally dive into your childhood and your relationship with your father by listening to these tapes. My favourite bit was the one about the Flintstones and licking the road. Hope there are more relics to come!

  8. I too still have the tapes I recorded when I was a child. But I could no longer listen to them since all of our cassette players are all busted. I remember what I recorded in some of them and it’s funny to think about it now.

  9. I assume you stumble into this as suppose to finding them intentionally? I give props to your dad for being a good sport.
