if it were me I would digitise whatever is on the tape recorder and have it played by a computer program set to play at those times. Less moving parts so less problems.

Thanks for the idea but we are a small rural church with a small, ageing congregation and I was just trying to do something with what we have.
Cool. you can get a used computer and linux for next to nothing if you look.

Can't help but agree here. Unless there is some sentimental value to using a cassette....
