i've got hundreds. in three drawers made for storing, stacked up.
& i have about a hundred in shoebox size containers.
my faves are in large jewelry boxes.
i like them as is, i don't care that they take up a lot of space.
1/2 are from my ex, who made me the best - he remembers my faves & is a dj, so these tapes have inside jokes, ect.
many are from Rodney Bingenheimer's show, some from way back when he played nothing but punk rok, then brit pop.i love that he always says who played the songs, stories about the band
in fact, he's broadcasting now The World Famous KROQ - Alt Rock Music News, Photos, Videos, Concerts
he was the 1st dj to play the Runaways, Blondie, the Ramones, Iggy, New York Dolls, Zolar X, Hole - on the radio - & many more new artists.
as for transferring, i like seeing the handwriting of the friends who made them. & the diff between analog & digital - i can tell the difference.
