Hi Myrtone, you seem to really know your stuff. Fair play to ya!
Although it seems I can't download the file without first buying into the site. Think i'll try record
the vinyl onto tape and see if I can play that in reverse. Let you know how I get on.

If you have a record player, tape the required song on an old cassette that you can open...with screws, reverse the tape and put it back
then press play ,and you get the whole track played backwards.we used to do this 20 years ago'they used to play songs backwards
and we figured out how to win

hope this is of some help
be interested in the secret messages!!!!!

"There's more than one way to skin a cat," they say... even though I abhor the use of a cat to make their point :roll: . Great suggestion, Jimbo. Can you do that in any semblance of neatness or might some people end up with the whole spool of tape loose, piled up, and tangled?

I'm interested in the 'message,' too... so, hopefully, whoever gets it will put it here.

38 minutes ago I received notification that there had been a fresh post since I last visited this thread - 7 months after the last entry.
Is that a record (played backwards)? or is Jarkko sending me a subliminal message? :o
