(UPDATED) While I didn’t become as connected to tape cassettes as you might have, I still have memories of creating my own radio show with my brother, listening to them with my dad in the car, and killing the music industry with my home radio recording addiction. Tapedeck is a site that aims to bring you back to those times and shine some light on a few old favorites.
Basically, it’s a gallery of the many quirky and colorful designs that found themselves on standard cassette tapes. Anyone who’s done at home recording or playfully destroyed the music industry in the pre-digital era will likely have some fond memories of the tapes that made it all possible. Take a minute to browse through the plastic wonders and processes that defined analog culture.
