Turn off Classic Rock Radio and Rock a Cassette Tape
Classic rock radio has hit the skids, they play the same 400 songs until you don’t want to hear them anymore. God forbid they play ‘Nobody’s Fault But Mine’ from Led Zeppelin or ‘Monkey Man’ from the Rolling Stones. Who really wants to hear ‘Satisfaction’ or ‘Stairway To Heaven’ five times a day?
Recently I ran my mini iPod through the washer. At the same time my cassette adapter stopped working. It is bad enough to have to drive a 1998 model car. I shouldn’t be forced to listen to classic rock radio as well. I was so desperate for some deep cuts that I broke out my old cassette tapes from the 80s and started playing them in my car. I am not proud of this fact, but I have been playing Bon Jovi’s entire Slippery When Wet cassette tape for about a week now.
It has been fun rediscovering my old cassette tape collection. I have falling back in love with the analog bass sound in my car. So to Hell with digital music. The bottom end bass sound of an analog cassette blows away digital recordings.
So if life has you down and your having to listen to your old cassette tapes,? Don’t despair, it is actually a good experience and a pleasant surprise.
The analog advantage ends here and does not apply to VHS tapes.
