this* is a cassette tape. for those of you who grew up on CDs, this was what we used to listen to music on. this, records, and yes, even 8 track tapes. don't laugh. the first "boom box" i had had an 8 track tape player on it.
oddly enough the sante fe we recently bough has a cassette player in it. i dug out the few tapes we had left (i used to have an assload of them, but they got stolen) and listed to one today on our way to drop off the broken car. and better even than the fact that it was a tape? it was a MIX tape! whooohooo. i was the queen of the mix tape. i made the hubs tapes when we were dating (they were stolen dammit). this tape had WAMX written on it. it's a radio station in huntington, wv. so i probably made it the summer we got back from germany, before i started college (in huntington, go herd!) in the fall of 1986.
wow. i haven't listened to every single song, but i had everything from james taylor, rick astley and journey on there to american pie. mix tapes rule.
*this image isn't MY tape it's from google images.
