in bend oregon there is a cool store called ranch records, right downtown. they had a pretty good selection of tapes.
i got a copy of an elmore james record on cassette for 3.75. classic stuff. the fellow manning the till told me about a repair shop in town that might have had some reel to reel machines, i called but they were out of them at the moment, saying they had them from time to time. have to check back.
