Join our friends from 10am-3pm on Saturday, October 17 at the 15th Annual LA Archives Bazaar! RSVP here.
Basement Tapes Day provides the public with access to vintage audio playback devices so they can listen to the home recordings on open-reel tapes, cassettes, and micro-cassettes that have been sitting in their attics or basements for years. The annual event is staffed by volunteers from the audio preservation community — archivists, engineers, collectors, restoration experts, and conservators.
Attendees can hear and publicly share their tapes, while learning about the history of recorded sound, common deterioration issues with magnetic audio formats, and how to best store and care for their collections.
