Analog To Digital The Easy Way!

Dear Broadcasters:

Have a collection/archive of aging reel to reels, carts, cassettes, or records that you want to preserve in the digital age?

I have the resources and the time to help you convert those analog gems into any digital audio format you wish (aiff, mp3, mp4, wav, etc). I have a vintage Crown 800 reel to reel which can play 7-1/2 and 3-3/4 reels beautifully, plus TEAC and Techniques cassette machines and CD burner.

I am also planning on acquiring a Tapecaster cart machine if the demand is great enough. I can put the files on CD, DVD, or an external or thumb drive.

My rates are reasonable–$20.00/reel in most cases, and yes, I have splicing equipment in case a repair is in order. As a former broadcaster, I know the value of precious memories, award winning material, or just the bloopers that made the job fun!
Visit my website jimdoblin.com and we’ll hash out the details.

Video tape conversion also available.

Oh yea…Loren still drives to work five days a week.
Walmart did Wade and the rest of the “Greatest Generation” a solid as well; donating 125k to the National World War II Memorial Campaign.
It was a pleasure and an education interviewing Loren Wade.

(footnote: Wade passed away at age 104 in late November, 2016).
