A friend mentioned a while back that he had an 8-track player in his garage but no 8-tracks. Being me, of course I knew where to get some.
We used to have a massive console, or entertainment unit, in our rec room growing up. It housed an 8-track player, a record player, and a radio. It is still in working order and currently sitting in my grandmother’s basement. (Click here for a picture on a post by Tom Purcell.)
For some of you this picture will mean nothing at all. You may recognize the artists and know the songs, but likely have never seen, let alone heard, an 8-track. Although technology has evolved leaps and bounds over the years, and sound quality has vastly improved, not ever experiencing the wonder that was the 8-track may be the most sinful thing about it.
