Cassettes are what were used back in the day to rip streaming music... Umm, yeah.
Nah, cassettes were those things that people would toss out the windows of their cars and this little ribbon would go blowing in the wind.
Ahhh, is that what those things were. I always wondered about that.They were this hi-tech recording media, that you would have to stick a pencil into it... and turn.. to take any slack out.
Still beats 8-track.....those gave me nightmares. Click...next track...click...next track.
The key to 8-tracks was knowing how to sequence perfectly to just hear your favorites. Listen to 27 seconds of a dud, then upshift twice and BINGO, up pops your hot track. Totally lost on the mp3 gen.The worst part was when the track changed...midway through your favourite song. GRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!
And my dad rented an 8-track recorder....taped from a bunch of LP's, and basically D.J'ed my sisters wedding(1979)...on 8-track. I'm embarassing myself beyond belief. :x
