Happy 50th Birthday to the Cassette Tape
Happy belated 50th birthday to the cassette tape. Sources close to me report that on December 3, 1962, Phillips began producing the audio cassette, changing the way we shared our favorite music forever.
Some of us are old enough to remember the art of crafting a mix tape, and even dabbled in tape trading circles into the late 1990's. Heck, I continued to run my ipod through a tape deck adapter in my truck up until a few years ago.
Here's a video by Ithica Audio commemorating 50 years of the mixtape. Happy belated birthday, you wonderful inanimate object.
