  4. I got one of these from my nephew for Christmas, and can anybody tell me this — where do you put the cassette in? I can’t figure this thing out, dang it. I’ve always got the 8-tracks in the closet as a backup, fortunately. Have to take the Granada out for a spin if I want to listen to those, however.

    Oh shoot, I have to go now to set my VCR to tape ‘That 70s show’ and ‘Mash’

    Anybody that can tell me how to to get the tape in this thing, please let me know — really!
