Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Eight Track Tape Day

Eight-track tapes, also known as eight-track cartridge or simply eight-track, were a popular format for music and audio playback in the 1960s and 1970s. They were a type of magnetic tape that was used in a cassette format, and they were designed to be played on a special eight-track tape player.

Eight-track tapes were characterized by their rectangular shape and the presence of a single spool of tape inside the cartridge. The tape was divided into eight parallel tracks, which allowed for stereo sound reproduction. Each track contained a separate recording of a different portion of the audio program, and the tracks were played in sequence as the tape was played.

Eight-track tapes eventually fell out of favor as newer and more advanced audio formats, such as cassette tapes and compact discs, became available. Today, eight-track tapes are considered a legacy format and are no longer widely used.
