I inadvertently got one of those old Bookcassette audio books that require an adapter. Does anyone here have one they don't need anymore? If so, may I borrow it or "buy" it for a PBS point?

You might check with libraries in your area to see if they will "lend" one.  I have an audiobook also like that and plan to listen to it in my van that has separate speakers, so it should work there.

There is an electronics company called DBL Distributing that has millions of items.  I go there to find very obscure plugs, cables, attachments, you name it.  You just need someone with a sales tax number to open an account and place the order.   My brother's office got together (computer geeks, each and every one of them) and opened an account and they place an order monthly on their joint account.

If you need help to place an order, I can help you.  PM me and I will give you a phone number at my business.  Have the item number, price and exact name of the item for us.

You might also check at Radio Shack.  I got one there long ago - sorry but I have NO idea where it is now (we've moved since then) or I'd happily send it to you!!  You can also probably get one from Brilliance Audio - long ago that was the only kind of audio books they recorded!!  Marilyn in GA
