TAPES ’N TAPES Wednesday, June 24
There was a time somewhere between the slow slide of vinyl and the meteoric rise of CDs when the cassette tape ruled. It was the early ’80s, and the only portable, recordable music medium was the tape. And holy crap, we loved it. It was the era of the mixtape, the Walkman and the failed “blank tape” tax. By the ’90s, though, the cassette was dead, replaced by that shining “indestructible” disc many consumers now consider obsolete.

Almost immediately, a conversation began in my mind, one between the asshole music critic and the softer-hearted dad. This is a snapshot of that conversation.
