I had held on to them for ages - these old recordings from the BBC Radio French language courses À Vous La France and its follow-on France Extra! I had the pupil books to go with them and the teacher's guide too. They served me well in planning lessons all those years ago. Old friends.
With space clearing at home it was time to say Au revoir ! to the K7 - cassette - collection. No one seemed interested in having the recordings in this format what with CD and MP3 downloads more easily managed.
When I brought them for recycling I had a moment of doubt and regret. I'd miss having them around. So I took a quick picture to remind me of the time and effort put into setting timers to record; labelling the cassettes and creating the J-card covers.
Au revoir les K7 !
