 "....Yet Another Reason Why  amoeba Rules."

 
Our pal Tom Schnabel, NPR and KCRW-FM icon and music wizard, posted a  cool remembrance of his day with 8 track cartridges. Remember those? They were cartridges with 1/4-inch tape inside that was divided up into 4 stereo programs (8 tracks) and were looped to play continuously inside of a small plastic...well, cartridge. I had one in my Chevy after the 4-track craze and before the cassette boom. I loved it when a song would fade out mid-chorus and start up again on the next track!
 
Ahhh...where's my dictaphone?
