Everybody's Talking About Cassettes This Week


  • Jennifer Silverberg

In this week's paper, Chrissy Wilmes expanded her blogpost about the St. Louis Mixtape Club into a longer feature.

Our sister paper, the Dallas Observer, published a feature talking about the rise of non-CD formats, including cassettes. This came a few days after the LA Times wrote an extensive piece centered around the city's influential tape labels such as Not Not Fun. And this morning, Alternative Press published a long article about the burgeoning popularity of the format.
