The Acura TL had a cassette player as late as 2008:
So weird this brought back memories of wearing out my favourite tapes. I only wore out two mostly because my parents were way too lame to to buy me music
Eye of the tiger - Survivor
Madonna - Some kind of compilation...
And that sound the tape made when you rewound it. And the horror when the tape got all tangled in the machine...
Landlord Rescue - Real Estate Blog
Or remember winding it with the back of a pencil
trying to predict with the ffw button(all tape players had various speeds)
having a mixed tape(not labelled)and searching high and low for it(or testing all your randoms)or wearing the tape out some much the play list labelled on the tape wore off.(and you lost the case)
and the worst.....having a tape get stuck in a car tape player lol.....so many things..
My memories-beastie boys/inxs/and the first tape i ever got......2 live crew(the banned addition,with the parent advisory on it...lol)snuck it home and felt so bad assed-prob 7 yrs old.
Does anyone remember those chrome (crO2) tapes? I had a few of them. Here's a very informative writeup about cassettes including chrome.
Time to fire up the Walkman. LOL.
I got rid of all my diskettes and Zip Drive cartridges this month. Even dispensed with some older DVD backups.
