The digital age has meant many changes for the music industry. When Napster first introduced peer to peer file sharing to the masses back in 1999, many thought it meant the end of physical media for good. CD's were replaced by MP3's and iPods. In the past decade we've seen the popularity of Vinyl LP's increase, with many music fans happy to pay a bit extra for something higher quality that they can hold in their hands and call their own. Now in recent years, we've seen the revival of the long forgotten cassette tape within some music scenes. Saskatoon Morning's Chris Bridge joined guest host Dan Kerslake with the story.
