This is just about the last "mass" market for cassettes in the U.S., I think. I'm not sure where you 
could buy a modern commercial music release in the U.S. or western Europe -- or if such a thing is 
even manufactured anymore. I think commercial music is still released on cassettes in parts of the 
Third World.
