The audio cassette also called the Compact Cassette or simply the tape is a recording format that was first introduced in 1963 to fill a need in the then available audio recording media options. The invention of the cassette tape allowed people to make recordings without having the level of training or expertise required for reel-to-reel.
In the video below, which is recorded on September 4, 2017, in Ridgewell, Suffolk, UK, you can see how the kids found old cassette tapes at their grandparents’ house and were told about how we used to listen to music. They still have no idea how it’s used and what on them. Their father asked them to give a demonstration of how we used to listen to music. Watch the video, it’s interesting!
