*Note to readers under 16: a cassette tape (n) is a plastic cartridge containing magnetic tape with the tape passing from one reel to another; used to play music and other audio morsels in cassette players. In heavy rotation from the late 1960s to the late 1990s, mix tapes were the precursor to mix CDs.
