Yes, but you knew about records even if you were no longer buying them, didn't you? It sounds to me like the writer of the OP has only heard of cassettes, which seems odd.

It also occurred to me after my last post that it's a lot easier to play a record backwards than a cassette. I think I maybe recall seeing one tape-deck back in the day that had a reverse-play button, whereas most turntables enable you to spin the record backwards.
