Remember when your cassette player would "eat" your cassette. You prayed you could save it. You'd pull it out and it was all wrinkled and unwound in the player. Grab a pencil and start winding it back up.
I say to each their own when it comes to analog vs digital. Personally I use both, often. BUT! I won't ever go back to cassettes for analog.
Yes, I remember that very clearly. And only the favorite tapes were eaten...the tape player was possessed!!
