    I just soldered in parallel a couple of leads to the speaker in my clock
    radio so I can tape the music without worrying about background noise.
    But connected to the remote jack, there's no sound at all while
    connected to the mic jack I get loud and distorted sound.

    What should I do; place a small cap in line or use a 8ohm/1K audio
    transducer and connect it to the mic input?

  2. Try a 100ohm pot across the leads from the speakers, adjusted to the level
    you need.

    You mean transformer? Use the pot suggestion.

    The remote jack is supposed to connect to a mic switch to turn the
    tape transport on and off.

    In addition to what has already been posted:
    You may be able to get suitable audio directly from the radio's volume

    Yeah, I did mean transformer. It's funny the things you have on your
    mind when you type at 3:00 in the morning.... :)
