Remove Background Noise from MP3

I have tapes of interviews that I'm paying to have transcribed. Some interviews were done in public places and have background noise. I'll be charged more for those. Unless I can somehow get the background noise off the MP3s....

So my interviews are on microcasette. I've hooked my transcriber up to my laptop and I'm turning them into MP3s to send off to be transcribed. I'm using ReplayMusic to record the MP3s and MP3Surgeon to cut out the parts of the interview that aren't supposed to be transcribed.
One set of interviews were done in public places like coffee shops or malls. These can be loud as there is the sounds of other people talking, dishes clattering etc. Since this makes them hard to transcribe, they'll cost me more. I want to make them easier to transcribe by somehow turning down the volume on the background noise. Is this possible? How?
The transcriber has no equalizer, though it does have a tone switch (high or low). I don't have another microcasette player.
