" I prefer good ol' Cassette tapes ", Actually I prefer Albums , but they don't fit on my dashboard very well and keep skipping every time I hit a bump.
Yes I did have one of those JVC Boombox's ready to hit record for my favorite songs on the radio and hated when the DJ's talked over the beginnings of the songs .

I am a CD guy myself. And no, I have never had one snap in half. That happened much more easily with 78's, which were a little before my time.

“You prefer good ol' CDs“

🤣 In the music question number 8 you literally asked me if I were to prefer tapes or CDs. Absolutely shocking that my answer is I prefer CDs!

And btw, the only reason I prefer CDs is because I used to absolutely despise having to rewind the tape as a kid to hear the song again. Well, that and the experience of the tape getting stuck in the heads/wheels and then having to gently attempt to extract and wind it back up. But man, there’s nothing like making your own mixtape and playing it all the time in the car. Both of them have their pluses and minuses. Tapes allow you to be creative on the fly while CD’s allow you to bounce through the songs quickly. I guess I’m really torn between the two of them 🤔

I always got the more expensive Aiwa walkmans with auto-reverse and music search and a lot of other features too, they had great sound too, but they cost a lot of money, about $135 back in the 80s which I guess would be about $350+ now.

I liked cassettes because I could record a mixture of songs off of my favorite records and produce my own "albums." I would pick one song off of this record album, a song off of a different album, another song from another album, then maybe go back to the first album and get a different song, etc. So I might still listen to most of the songs on a particular record album but not in the same order and there would be other songs from other records in-between. I did this after I was working and bought a component stereo system. The recordings I had made using a microphone and a portable cassette recorder just didn't sound very good when I finally had a car. So I wanted "one of those stereos where things plug into each other."

I used to sometimes record things off of the radio and TV using a portable cassette recorder and a microphone and would mostly listen to the tapes when lying in the sun. I recorded the songs from the Elvis movies that used to be on TV, and I made a tape of songs sung on Petticoat Junction - they used to rerun that show when I was in high school and I liked the music. Now I'm telling my age!

I got CD's. They're OK for convenience, or the car, but I am and always will be a devotee of vinyl! I'm happy as a clam to see them comeback and also more popular than CD's. I lived with cassettes in the 70s, and about the only thing good about them was that they took up less space than 8 tracks in the glovebox. My car player also had a healthy appetite for chewing up the tape in cassettes!

I prefer cassette tapes? I started with vinyl records [hell, I had some bright yellow 78 rpm records--don't remember what songs were on them, though]. Then cassettes came out...and then CDs. I have bunches and bunches of all of them...but what I REALLY want is a CD of the Genesis album Three Sides Live {One Studio Side} with the original studio side. Me & Virgil, Afterglow, Open Door...I mean, Watcher Of The Skies is nice, but I want the music on the CD that I've got on the cassette.
