Description

The M96 was the second tape recorder I ever owned.  My father had purchased it sometime between 1962 and 1963 while we were living in the United States, and I inherited it in 1966 when he upgraded to a stereo B&O system. Anyway, I learnt how to do “sound-on-sound” and “sound-with-sound”, bouncing
my adolescent original music from one track to the other and I ended up with some very muddy but interesting results.  I used to record every album I could lay my hands on and by the time I was 16, I had over 300 LP’s on tape!!
