The teens went into the room and looked at the objects on the table. One was obviously a speaker of some sort, but what was that other thing? “It’s a record!” one girl belted out with certainty. “No, it’s not a record. It’s a tape.” Many in high school and just about everyone in middle school have never seen a tape. To them it’s an antique; perhaps even worth some money.
8 tracks, records and tapes have since been replaced by CDs and mp3s. Many teens don’t even bother to purchase music at a physical store. It’s all done online and downloaded immediately to their phone, tablet or other multi-functional device. The method of playing music has changed dramatically over time, but the fact is that all people have a fascination with music, whether they are seniors in high school or seniors in life.
