  Cassette culture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cassette culture was in part an offshoot of the mail art movement of the 1970s and 1980s.
In the UK cassette culture was at its peak in what is known as the post-punk period, 1978--1984; in the US activity extended through the late 80s and into the 90s.
Cassette culture received something of a mainstream boost when acknowledged for a short while in the early 1980s in the UK by the major music press.

 Compact audio cassette - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The cassette was a great step forward in convenience from reel-to-reel audio tape recording, though because of the limitations of the cassette's size and speed, it initially compared poorly in quality.
Most cassettes were sold blank and used for recording (dubbing) the owner's records (as backup or to make compilations), their friends' records or music from the radio.
Cassettes were also a boon to people wishing to tape concerts (unauthorized or authorized) for sale or trade, a practice tacitly or overtly encouraged by many bands with a more counterculture bent such as the Grateful Dead.

 BBC NEWS | Technology | Not long left for cassette tapes
The cassette may have hissed, been prone to wow and flutter, and often ended its life chewed in a tape deck, but it ruled for four decades before MP3s and downloads.
"Cassette albums have declined quite significantly since their peak in 1989 when they were selling 83 million units in the UK," Matt Phillips of the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) told BBC World Service's The Music Biz programme.
However, while cassettes are disappearing quickly from the music stores, they are clinging on in the UK in bookshops.

 Beatles Cassette Tape-ography
While it is often true that early pressings of albums have better sound quality than reissues, the early cassettes were recorded at lower volumes (meaning greater tape hiss) and apparently did not have as long a life as the cassettes we have today.
The two cassettes were housed in a fl outer box with "The Beatles" and a large Apple on it, along with the catalog number.
Since early cassette tapes were sold in much lower quantities than were vinyl albums, and since cassettes were typically not available at the same time as the LP (originally), they tend to be much scarcer than their LP counterparts.

 Shimano Cassettes & Freehubs, by Sheldon Brown
All sprockets in a Hyperglide cassette are splined, and a special lock ring screws into internal threads on the freehub body to hold the set together.
Cassettes come in various gear ranges, and the ones where the sizes are close together, with no really large sprockets are commonly referred to in marketing-speak as "road" cassettes.
In the case of cassettes that are actually rivetted together, the easiest way to remove the rivets is to grind off the heads where they protrude from the largest sprocket.

 Guardian Unlimited Arts | | Last night a mix tape saved my life
Earlier this year, Cassette Stories, an exhibition at the Museum of Communication in Hamburg, threw a fond light on the home-mix tape as diary or love letter.
The picture that emerged was of the mix cassette as a way of re-sequencing music to make sense of our most stubbornly inexpressible feelings, a way of explaining ourselves to someone we love, or to ourselves.
More recently, record companies have started to issue promos in cassette form, not only because they stand out from the crowd but also - irony of ironies - because the original bootlegger's medium turns out to be so much harder to copy.

 Notes on the Troubleshooting and Repair of Video Cassette Recorders
If attempting to load a cassette produces no response (though the VCR has power), then there could be a problem with the microswitch that senses the presence of a cassette, the cassette loading motor (if separate from the main motor), a slipping or broken belt, or a faulty driver or other electronic problem.
Similarly, if the cassette seems to be cycling in and out in an apparently infinite loop, there may be an obstruction or the microcontroller is confused by a bad sensor or the basket is out of synchronization with the rest of the mechanism.
In particular, if the cassette was loaded successfully and you just finished a thoroughly enjoyable movie, the microcontroller may think the mechanism is not safe and is not ejecting to protect your valuable tape from possible damage should it not be fully retracted into the cassette.

The video cassette recorder (or VCR, less popularly video tape recorder) is a type of video tape recorder that uses removable cassettes containing magnetic tape to record audio and video from a television broadcast so it can be played back later.
In the early 1970s the Dutch electronics company Philips developed a VCR system that used square cassettes with a recording time of one hour (the Video Compact Cassette system).
Macrovision caused the functionality of the video cassette recorder to be greatly reduced by adding random peaks of luminance to the recorded video during vertical sync, which confuse the automatic level adjustment of a recording VCR and thus prevent the analog copying of Video Tapes or DVDs.
