Apparently today is the 30th anniversary of the Cassette. Create Digital Music has a great walk down memory lane worth checking out: Happy 30th, Sony Walkman: Your Memories and the Best of Cassettes on CDM

    Oooh, I should be clear — the cassette most definitely predates the walkman, so it’s older than 30 years.

    Now, we are apparently near the 45th anniversary of the introduction of the CC to the US, but Wikipedia doesn’t have a date.

    The compact cassette did get quite a boost from the Sony Walkman, however, so it seemed appropriate to me to look at the format and not just the player.

  2. Well whatever the date the Cassette is wonderful and deserve celebrating any day!
