Interesting to hear from those who still appreciate cassettes. I always took good care of my cassettes, but STILL they got "eaten" more times than I care to remember. I also cleaned the cassette head, but never did clean the capstans, (I believe they were called). Perhaps that's the source of my problems.
Also I had several cassettes where the felt pad fell off of the copper band that supported the tape. Grrr...
From a business standpoint alone, it seems unwise to sell a product in a format that, right off the bat, eliminates maybe 80% of your potential clientele. On the other hand, these little cassette music labels keep chugging right along, so there must be a big enough market to support them.
Last night I listened to: Specta Ciera & The Circular Ruins- Middle Distance. Pure magic!
