If I recall correctly, CDs became more popular than cassettes somewhere around 1994. They remained popular until streaming overtook them. The one that was definitely less popular was 8-tracks, which were just a bad technology.
I looked up the Pearl Jam record Ten used on Discogs, vinyl from $29, CD from $2.49 and cassette from $6.99.
I had an 8-track in my car and at home. Nothing enhances the music like a loud clunk when the tracks switch. Just another part of my musical menagerie that we moved cross country and then sold.
@jimtoo - I am old enough to remember when there were a set of 78 rpm records that came in a box for the musical score of a play before you could get the entire musical score for that play on one LP record
SCTV was quite possibly the best skit comedy of all time!
I do miss this strip that our Florida papers carried. Gentle, clever humor on most days and usually spot-on in its observations of everyday life.
Sad but true.
