Cassette Tapes are Back!

Did you know SpringMO is home to one of the last cassette tape manufacturers?

Steve Stepp, President of the National Audio Company, told our friends at KSPR the business produces, “95% of the cassettes produced in the western hemisphere.”

Did you know this was going on right here in Springfield?! Because I did not.

Much like vinyl, cassettes are now making a comeback- think of the hipsters!

I’ve always talked about my love of my cassettes…I have a few choice ones I can’t let go: The Beatles’ White Album, Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits, and of course, the “Pretty in Pink” soundtrack!

I wish my new car still had a tape deck.

Yes, I’m serious.
