I bought a cassette walkman last year in a thrift shop and I was surprised at how good it sounded. I like the interaction of cassette players (flipping the tape over). It feels like you're part of the album experience. Obviously I hate it when the tape gets stuck or jammed. But cassettes were the main means of how I listened to music growing up during the '80s into the '90s, so they will always be special to me.
