Re: audio-only listening of Trek film's soundtrack like a radio drama

Well, don't call me a get-a-life geek or anything, but...

Back during the Dark Times in the Early 1970s... Long before visual media like VCRs and all that... I spent my early years taping all of the episodes off the air with a hand-held audio cassette recorder so I could play them back over and over again... This got rather messy with all the syndication cuts, so I had multiple tapes for each episode from different stations... Clicking it on and off to bypass commerials and without the title seq and end credits I was typically able to fit 1 full episode on each side of a 90 minute tape... I labelled each with Title and Stardate using a label-maker gun... I still have them stashed away here, somewhere, though I dunno about their playback status...

Later on I taped TAS, I think fitting 4 episodes per tape or else I used shorter running time tapes... I used Red labels for TAS, Black for TOS... TAS was a real pain in the ass to tape since I missed their initial airings and had to wing it whenever cartoons randomly popped up...

And even then people thought I was...crazy...
