A cassette tape runs at 1.875 inches per second.
(Half the speed of the slowest (usually) speed that the old reel to reels ran at)
My Akai does 7.5 ips and 3.75 ips.

3,600 seconds in an hour make it 6,750 inches.
This equates to 562 feet 6 inches !!!!

Yay (I've enever typed that before and it feels strange)! Just testing as I have that list of "facts" in a book of useless info. So I suppose that means there's probably about 1ft 3 in of run on at either end of a 60 minute tape. By the way, I still want to know which indoor sport has 39 measuring 42 (my degree in maths at Oxford doesn't help me there).
