so nice .. i always wondered about the extra tape. are they shortened for the amount of tracks on it? i mean typically 30 min per side or 45 dont get all filled up

Typical cassettes singles were usually the length of two songs, The single and it’s b side, both repeated on both sides of the tape. They used to cost about £1.99 here in the uk.

ya I have loads of them. just wondering about these homemade ones. is there excessive extra tape on them> and how much you bought them for

I can make them but I don't want to have a ton of blank tape left over if that makes sense

being they are "homemade", im betting whomever did it, they just bought a bulk of blank standard tapes to use for various recordings. it would be easier and cheaper especially if you plan to do longer recordings.  im betting buying blank tapes with specific time would be more difficult and expensive. each tape would be different in time. hope that makes sense and of course i am just speculating what this person did.
