My Friend The Cassette


Does anyone remember making mix tapes on actual cassettes? Recording songs off of radio stations? Having to listen to that same intro every single time you listened to that song, for which you actually had to rewind the tape?
Something was special about music, and something was special about mix tapes. I miss it.

i used to record video game music off my tv. you could hear the rustling of putting the recorder in place before every song. there's something inefficiently special about recording music onto cassettes. it's a bit like farming the crops you eat.

I even remember when the cassette player would chew up my tape, then I would take it out, get some tape and perform surgery or would have to get the screw driver to untangle it, ahhh those were the days

Thanks John!

Hahaha, yes. So much frustration when you think your favorite tape is messed up...
