Growing up in the 1970s one of the biggest things for me was getting an 8 track player installed in my car. It was really neat to hear all of your favorite music with no talk and no commercials.The only problem with the 8 track was where you would be right in the best part of the son and it would switch tracks on you. I could never understand why they were recorded that way. If they had let the song finish and then let it switch tracks maybe the 8 track tape would have lasted a little bit longer. April 11th is 8 track day and her are my three favorites. Bostons debut album, Who s Next by The Who, and Bachman Turner Overdrives Not Fragile.
