For the record, I believe the fellow featured in the article is the same
person who was a frequent contributor to the late, great 'zine 8-Track
Mind in the 90s under the name "Mr. Bucks." He was kind of the
antagonist to the editor of 8-Track Mind, who really liked the fact that
(at the time) 8-tracks seemed to have zero appeal to record collectors,
and they could be acquired by the truckload for little or no money. He
unapologetically promoted the 8-track as a "valid" format for collectors
to buy (and pay big money for). Eventually his side won, and 8-Track
Mind discontinued publication, with the final issue declaring that the
golden age of 8-track collecting was over.
