It's a love in with a certain technology that won't go away....like Vinyl. It's interesting seeing the design and subsequent worldwide acceptance of the cassette. We meet the engineers who started it all - I like the mention of standards of the design, avoiding the whole beta vs VHS fiasco we had with video tape. Born in the 60's I am every person in that doc - I play guitar, created tons of music on cassette, and still have all those tapes dating back to my first in 1977. Nostalgic? Certainly. Still practical today? Of course. The cassette tape deck is always beside my guitar amp - waiting for my next hit single. You haven't heard of me? Let me get you one of my tapes.
