RIP Cassette Tape

One of the most repulsive kids in my neighborhood (although very funny) recorded every fart he let loose during 5th grade. I wonder if he converted that to disc?
If the boomers grew up on the album and the Gen-Yers grew up on the CD, Gen-X certainly was weaned on the cassette. And while it’s evident that there is certainly a market for vinyl, and there is a pretty good chance that the CD will experience a similar, if nowhere nearly as intense revival when it eventually goes away, one thing is certain: there is no such nostalgic feeling for cassettes.
