So my mother gave me a cassette tape of my grandmother and her bluegrass band playing bluegrass or old time music.
This is my grandmother from my fathers side of the family (the music side of the family). Although I never got a chance to meet my grandmother (Died in 1968) she had 9 kids who all ended up playing music, so my father passed down the tradition to me.
The tape was converted from magnetic to cassette sometime in 80’s. Now I have the cassette and have no clue in how I should approach transferring it to digital? The original recording was supposed to be from the mid to late 1940’s and is her and her brothers playing on a radio broadcast.
My concern is that I do not have a cassette player to stick this into and listen to…nor do I want to in fear of having it “chewed up”. So I am wondering if any of you know of the best way to convert this (or a name of a company that does this)to digital?
I am “chomping at the bit” to hear the music, but will not risk playing it in fear of destroying the cassette… so any input on how I should proceed would be appreciated.
