Ladies who lovingly made a compilation cassette tape to impress the opposite sex and who loved the sounds a chewed tape emitted - often like you had dunked the singers head under water - will be as disappointed as us to hear that Currys is slowly killing off the audio cassette.
Yes, that’s right, the product we all grew up with and loved has finally been committed to its dreadful death by the electronics retailer who has bowed to digital pressure and is outing the product to make more room for iPods and mp3 players.
Currys will continue for now to sell existing stocks of cassette tapes, but these will not be replenished giving the products a shelf life of at least 18 months.
The store will also phase out tape decks by Christmas, which are currently available in less than five per cent of audio equipment – better hurry up get all you old mix tapes copied onto CD then.
