It wouldn't have difficult in 1959 to record slower or play back faster. There would have been some means of controlling the motor speed that could be modified even if there was no existing control. I don't know what kind of machines would have been used but there may even have been gears or a belt driving the reels that could be physically modified. If the the tape moved at a constant rate with varying wheel rotation speed then then the that rate surely could be reduced for recording.
