Looks as if Dennis is using one of the first cassette machines, a Philips from the looks of it, with the DIN plug on the mic.

Actually mike, radiofan has a scan of an article from a Philips in house magazine from 1964 which talks about CFAC's use of their cassette machines. Perhaps he'll post it. I took one to the UK that year and used it to interview Manfred Mann, Freddie and the Dreamers and others. It was cutting edge tech at the time.

We were using Uhers as the first really portable tape machines in the early '60s at CKOV and had one of the first Phillips cassette machines as well.
Prior to that, the most portable tape machine was the Ampex 600.
The problem with cassettes was noise, the tape hiss was pretty excessive in the early units and sounded bad, especially on FM.
The first Sonys improved on the sound but hiss always was a problem with FM.
Cassettes continued to be the medium of choice for portable recording up until the arrival of DAT.
We replaced all the cassette recorders at CHUM and CHUM -FM with portable Sony DATS in the early '80s.
