God Save The Eight-Track

Bucks Burnett is the eight-track tape's patron saint: Since the beginning of his obsession in the late '80s, Burnett has become the eight-track's most vocal champion and recently opened the world's first museum devoted entirely to the format.

Growing up in the 1970s, Bucks Burnett never even owned an eight-track tape: When his parents purchased their first post-LP stereo console, they went straight for a cassette player. 'They were visionaries,' he says. Here's an interview that Collectors Weekly had with Bucks Burnett.
