Sony TCM-818

I have had this little gem for a long time but I can't remember where it came from. Did I buy it or was it a hand-me-down? Anyway, it's been sitting as part of my hi-fi system for at least 35 years. Not only did I use it to cue up tapes and as a rewinder, I did listen to lots of old time radio programs from my collection on it.

Today it works just fine. Only the tape counter is a little sluggish, probably a weak belt. Some things are just made well and last a loong time. This is one of them.
