As recently as 2001 I was still recording songs off the radio to cassette!
Nowadays it's not only not necessary but probably for a lot of people impossible anyway since cassette player/recorders are either now junk, like the ones I had in storage for a long time that I messed around with last year in an attempt to upload them to CD - or they're next to impossible to find. Aside from the fact that they're so outmoded and good quality blanks are difficult to find they're completely irrelevant.
thon red musical tape recorder looks like a toaster.
