Eight Track Tape Day
About Eight Track Tape Day
When is Eight Track Tape Day? This holiday is always celebrated on April 11
Eight Track Tape Day, an April 11 holiday, brings back fond memories of the sixties and seventies. During this era, eight-track tapes ruled the music world. America’s love of the automobile was a driving force in creating the demand for musical cassette formats. For those who grew up in this era, an eight-track tape player in your home and your car was an essential. It was eventually replaced by cassettes and other formats for storing music.
Eight Track Tape Day is a day to bring back fond memories of the sixties and seventies. If you still have tapes and a player, by all means, enjoy the day listening to some great music. If not, just spend a few minutes looking back in time to when you loved your eight-track tapes!
