Set the controls on the WayBack Machine for 1984, Sherman! The coolest guy in summer camp that year was the counsellor, and he had a killer audio system in his room. The thing that I remember best about it was that his tape deck, in addition to be auto-reverse (which was, in itself, almost magical to me then), was somehow psychic and would instantly reverse the tape when it reached the leader, not waiting to reach the actual end of the spool. This allowed him to make the greatest tape copies of his albums, because he didn't deal with the tape as two 45 minute tapes, but as one 90 minute tape. Entirely out of curiosity and a sense of wonder from my lost youth, does anybody know what that feature was called and if it was common on component tape decks? Do any brands currently have such a feature?
