VHS to audio cassette

I'm working on a project that deals mainly with audio cassettes.
Is there an easy way to transfer VHS tapes to audio cassettes?
Any help would be great.

I think Radio Shack would do fine here.

Go get the cable from the VHS audio out to the Audio Input from Radio Shack.

Seems too easy.

Cassette? I like to hear why;

don't you know cassette is dead? In any case, I think you are going about it the wrong way. I will tell you why when I know your reasons for this.

I bought a Tascam cassette mixer off Craigslist.
In the old days I used to fool around with cassettes all the time but could never overdub. I am not techo savvy at all. I've always wanted
make my own personal Revolution #9 type tape. (I'm so serious about this I'm paying a fair amount of money to have The Best of The Doors quad 8 track broken down into 4 seperate CDs...which I'll transfer to cassette) There's so much in spoken word I have on VHS my head is just swimming with ideas.
As you can tell I'm old school - but like it. I know there's better ways to do things but I'm pretty stupid and need to start at the bottom and work up. Any help would be great.

Ok, tell me what you think.

Here is how I would do it; You capture the sound from the vhs to the computer (using audacity or audio cleaning lab. or some other software), then edit the songs before putting it in the cassette. This way you don't have to sit there and monitor the transfer from vhs to cassette.
