Next time you are shopping at an estate sale keep your eyes alert for cassette tapes and vinyl records.

In the last few weeks cassette tapes have received a lot of attention.

Urban Outfitters has been selling vinyl records to collectors and now they are selling cassette tapes from numerous artists. Urban Outfitters is not only selling new cassette tapes, but also the boom boxes to play them on. You can read more about it in this article written by Sharelle M. Burt

Bobby Owinski of Music 3.0 also wrote an article on the return of the cassette tape. In it he provides more information from the National Audio Company.

The video below about the National Audio Company is from Bloomberg Business.

Fascinating that what was old is now “new” again. Watch for them at the next estate sale you attend.
