It’s cool to spool again as the cassette returns on a wave of nostalgia
Pause. Stop. Rewind! The cassette, long consigned to the bargain bin of musical history, is staging a humble comeback. Sales have soared in the last year – up 125% in 2018 on the year before – amounting to more than 50,000 cassette albums bought in the UK, the highest volume in 15 years.

It’s quite a fall from the format’s peak in 1989 when 83 million cassettes were bought by British music fans, but when everyone from pop superstar Ariana Grande to punk duo Sleaford Mods are taking to tape, a mini revival seems afoot. But why?

“It’s the tangibility of having this collectible format and a way to play music that isn’t just a stream or download,” says techno DJ Phin, who has just released her first EP on cassette as label boss of Theory of Yesterday. ...

Hi there,
Your news has a good piece of information about music history and industry. I'm also a big fan of this DJ snake. Boundbuzz also shares good quality technology content.

I have borrowed CD books from the public library and am always bothered by having to write down what track I am on (of which disc) whenever I stop. In the Good Old Days, those cassettes were much simpler--just stop and set it aside, put it back in whenever ready to resume listening.
Another thing that I have noticed that has disappeared from the market are those small AM/FM radios that fit in your pocket. But the Fire Dept and Police Dept are always saying, listen to our emergency alerts on the radio when the power is out. People in Florida during Hurricane Michael or Irma could not use smartphones since all cell towers were blown away, and there were few places with power to recharge the phones. The same can happen during a Winter Storm Warning, like the one in effect right now in the mountains of California.

US says...
But the solution to your dilemma is MP3 player which is how most of the content here is delivered."

Another good option is a smartphone. Then you have endless storage space. No longer are you limited by a physical item (since you can just use the internet). If cassettes do come back, it will only be a temporary fad. Just until people get annoyed at the slowness of it, and the option for better, clearer, faster options is seen as a better idea...

The compression ratio of mp3 files is amazing. I have the entire Bible on 66 cds or read by same person in mp3 format on 2 cds

Maybe this will bring back the equipment needed to play the cassettes. Their sound quality is not as good as CDs but they are much more convenient to listen to books or sermons than CDs because you can stop them in the middle and start over later at the same place. With a CD, once you've turned off the equipment, you have to start over again from the beginning, and remember (have noted it on paper?)the exact spot where you stopped so you can fast forward to it. The tape is just waiting for you to resume at the same spot, no work needed.
And, they make it easy to record radio programs, where you can fast forward through the commercials. And, once you're done with that program, you can use the tape over again. I don't know of a CD player that allows you to record with a push of a button, without having to go through a program that makes you enter an audio engineer (Audacity, for example). And then you can't record over that CD later on.
There is such a thing as a rewritable cd.

But the solution to your dilemma is MP3 player which is how most of the content here is delivered. Since most music is downloaded and/or streamed is a tad stunning that cassettes would be making a comeback.

"Face it, Christopher. You just miss the days when your shopping cart actually had wheels on it."

Your comments just ooze with jealousy, and envy. I guess I need to repeat this once again: Stop lashing out, and holding us all responsible for the blow that nature dealt you, with your mangled, mis-firing, confused, DNA, and chromosomes gone horribly wrong. Your appearance is not our fault. The disabilities and deformities that people laugh at you about, are not our fault. The mental deficiencies that qualified you to be accepted, and live amongst the other outcasts, high atop a landfill, are not our fault.

Please, stop blaming anyone and everyone, for things that we just had nothing, whatsoever to do with. Accept who, and what you are, and move on already...

I, for one, miss the more simple days, when high technology was still science fiction, and life was far more simple. I miss the big, Pioneer speakers, the crackle of a record playing, drive-ins, everyone meeting at the skating rink on a weekend night, or the local pizza place, people talking, hanging out, and kids playing ball, etc., instead of being buried in a smartphone, or gaming console, etc., etc. I love nostalgia because it just reminds me of much better, simpler, and happier times.

Now, by way of contrast, society is stressed out, angry, filled with hatred, violent, murderous, anxious, entitled, lazy, strung out, drugged up, bigoted, and among many other negatives, increasingly Godless, senseless, and demoralized. Not that any of these things are new to mankind, but the breakdown is on a mass, nationwide, and even, worldwide scale. Our way of life has been turned upside-down...what was once wrong, is now right, what was once taboo, is being openly practiced, and celebrated, what was once illegal and condemned, is now legal, and being encouraged, what was once good, and right, and holy, is now scorned and mocked, what was once considered sin, have become ways of life. Sin is being mocked, God is being mocked, and His very Word is under attack.
