Eight Track Tape Day

April 11 is Eight Track Tape Day!

The eight-track was a magnetic tape that had the capacity to record sounds, specifically music. This technology was popular in the United States and the United Kingdom from the mid-1960s to the early 1980s, until the cassette tape came along.

Once the cassette tape was invented, the eight track tape became obsolete. If you still have an eight track player, take a trip down memory lane today and listen to some nostalgic tunes.
