I’m getting ready to spend the weekend in Bellingham at the 25 year reunion (I couldn’t possibly be that old, could I?) of the band I played in during the early ’80s, Eddie & The Atlantics.
Last night while rummaging through old band stuff I came across the first demo tape we did and the recording of our wild first birthday gig at the Rainbow Tavern (our home in Seattle), and I decided that I’d try to get them on my computer.
I dug up a cord to connect the RCA output jacks on my tape deck to the line-in mini-phone plug on my Mac, downloaded the excellent Audio Hijack application from Rogue Amoeba, used their LineIn app to get the line input into the audio subsystem, and I was off to the races!
I stayed up much too late working my way nostalgically through both tapes, and now have them safely ensconced in iTunes, where I can burn them to CDs for my old bandmates.
That oughta impress them.
Audio Hijack is a great small app and a great value for only $16.
