Here’s an interesting article about cassette culture in 2022.

What do you think? Should Josephmooon release its music on cassette?

Interviews on cassette that survived the “rock writer” years. I taped over a lot of interviews.

Interested parties are first directed to my memoir, “Everything I Know I Learned From Rock Stars” (Eckhartz Press). While I have taken music therapy classes and read extensively about music’s effect on the brain, I am NOT professionally trained -- just a music lover who recognizes that everyone benefits from music. Giving that gift to special needs youth is highly rewarding, but again, my process is intuitive, not academic. I draw largely on personal experience. I’ve spent most of my 67 years observing a wide world of music, from working as a music critic professionally for 20 years, and holding positions in music companies in the 1970s and 1990s. Since 1990, however, I have focused on learning more about music and improving as a singer, guitarist, and performer, both solo and in ensemble settings.

    1. The article makes the argument that vinyl production at the moment is more costly and more time-consuming than cassettes, and that there remains an active sub-culture of cassette enthusiasts. As the machines to play them on are no longer very popular — I mean, automobile manufacturers don’t even include CD players in their cars anymore, let alone cassette players — I would wager that streaming will continue to grow at the expense of every other form of music distribution.

  1. Bikini Kill is putting out cassettes of their catalog. Grumpster put out a cassette. We bought a vintage cassette player to join the trend.
