Cassette Revival Makes "NBC Nighty News"

The cassette revival isn’t just for internet think pieces: It was the subject of an “NBC Nighty News” segment that aired on Sunday night, as Stereogum points out. As NBC’s Kate Snow puts it: “When the CD came along we chucked all those old cassettes, but guess what? They’re back!” Watch it below. 

The segment focused on the National Audio Company, a tape manufacturing plant in Missouri. There are interviews with the plant’s employees, close-up action footage of the tapes being produced, shots of tapes by Diet Cig, and a brief interview with Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin‘s Philip Dickey. 

Read “This Is Not a Mixtape”, Marc Hogan’s feature on cassette culture.
