We actually had a separate, external cassette recorder attached to the
machine (and no disk).  I remember having to make sure the thing was
connected to the mic jack for saving, and headphone jack for retrieval, and
then ppushing play (or play/record) when loading or saving (not to mention
manually advancing the tape past the leader before saving my little BASIC
programs).
