    When I was about 5 or so I had a 3" reel to reel player / recorder. I would record my own voice or other stuff like the TV.

      Technology has really changed since we (I) were (was) young. Anybody still use a slide rule? And with digital clocks, many young people don't know what clockwise means. When we were young, my parents pulled out the 8mm projector and screen to watch home movies. Pretty much impossible to share unless relatives and neighbors came over to the house. Reel to reel was the only way to copy a record or record audio.

        I had a small 3" reel to reel my Grandfather gave me when I was a kid. I remember recording "Light My Fire" by the Doors on AM Radio station KJR when it made song of the year after the countdown... My first high-end experience?
