That would be very interesting.  Tell me, do you have a computer with
a sound card, and a microphone?  If you have that, it should be fairly
easy to play the tape into the microphone, and have the machine record
it as a .wav file (which could then be converted to an mp3).  That's
probably the simplest way to do it, although it may not produce the
highest-quality files.  If you don't have a microphone, it'll be more
difficult, of course.
