Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! a tape!!!
Okay, 4give me, pls.
Right, as you (between the lines) pointed out, the secret is the lead. Hooking up to the right color
is key...but, you're there already.
I'd go with Audacity
. There may be others, Audacity is simple and easy to manage.
And, by the way, as soon as it's your boss' birthday, give him a recorder that uses MP3...
Any MP3 player has a microphone built in...to record stuff...
