This won't surprise you but...

I have about a thousand vinyl records stored in various cupboards at  
home. I should really get rid of them - as I haven't played one in  
about five years. And I seem to have re-acquired most of them on CD.

About three years ago I threw out about four hundred cassettes[1]. At  
least half of them were prerecorded.

My parents once had a stereo that played eight tracks. We only every  
owned about half a dozen cartridges between us. The only one I can  
remember owning is the soundtrack to "Slade in Flame"[2].
