8 Track Tapes

How can anyone in the 70's forget 8-Track tapes and the player in every dashboard of the truck...lol. It was worse when there was an 8-Track player in the house.

8 Track Tapes - Probably the first media containing "on demand" music. These could go with you in your car if you had an 8 track player. But, there was no rewind. If you wanted to hear that song again, you forwarded until you thought you were close enough to it, then hit play, forward, play, forward, oops...missed the beginning of the song...forward, play, forward...

Eight-track tapes. My father had an 8-track player in his Blazer in the 1970s. The carrying cases for the tapes were like luggage.
