Tape that is not digitised by 2025 will in most cases be lost forever. As the NFSA races to digitise its magnetic tape collection, we pause to celebrate a legacy recording medium still revered by the recording industry in 2019.

We delve into the importance of magnetic tape in a digital world, aesthetically and from a production perspective, discussing the pros and cons of physical storage for archives.

Join us in discussion with producer and engineer Louis Montgomery as we dig into the NFSA collection to showcase rare and important examples of the format.
