Yesterday, the humble cassette tape turned 50. It was such a user friendly way to share music, record off radio and in the late 70’s to early 80’s enabled portability of our own music collections. These days they are used rarely but their value was immense. The cassette opened new horizons, opened up fresh possibilities and have is many hour of joy. Largely unknown to a new generation but the once powerful left a foundation for the current age. Happy birthday!
