Many listeners may have accumulated or inherited large collections of Old Radio Shows on cassette with episodes of Suspense, Fibber McGee & Molly, Tarzan, Richard Diamond, Archie Andrews & and more.
Old time radio on cassette became popular and replaced 8-tracks in the mid-1980s. The cassettes may have been enjoyed by previous generations or just enjoyed decades ago who loved collecting & listening to everything old time radio.
Sadly, cassette tapes, open reel-to-reel tapes, 8-track tapes, DAT, and VHS can "go bad" (degrade) because they are magnetic tape mediums. Old Time Radio cassettes were slowly replaced by audio CDs, MP3 CD in the 1990's and 2000's. Today streamable/downloaded old time radio shows are the the most popular choice.
Unsure what to do with your collection of cassette tapes? You could donate them to Goodwill or non-profit thrift store, but many listeners have found great satisfaction in donating their cassette collections to their local centers for the blind.
Many blind listeners still enjoy the simplicity being able to load and unload cassette tapes and you'll be certain the old time radio shows will be enjoyed all over again!
