Happy Eight Track Tape Day

Gather 'round children, because Pappy's going to tell you a story about his portable music. Now, it's not as spiffy as I-Pod, but we had something called an Eight Track Tape. The eight track was spiffy in it's own way because you could play it in a car. Your ol' pappy had stacks of 8 tracks, even though he didn't have a car. I had Led Zeppelin, Rick Derringer, and even Black Sabbath. But the eight track's died off, well, because they sucked. They always broke and sounded like the music had a wet towel on it. But I reckon since it's Eight Track Tape Day, we'll celebrate this fine piece of historical portable music. Now, little Earl, go fetch Pappy some lighter fluid and let's burn us a Bee Gee's eight track.
