We had tons of music on records, 8-tracks and cassettes. Mostly on Sunday mornings my Dad would put on a record or an 8-track and we'd listen to an entire album of the Beatles or something from his childhood / teenage years. I guess that's where my love of music comes from.
I remember having my first record (Madonna) and then the rest as cassettes. CDs weren't as much of a big deal until I was older... well maybe they were to other people who had more money but for us it was all about the record and the cassette.
