There's a chance many have left the cassette tape for dead. Heck, I know I did. In recent years though, it's started to make a comeback. Cassette tape sales grew 23% in 2018 with a total of 219,000 tapes sold. If you go back to 2016, this represents almost a 100,000 unit increase when 129,000 tapes were sold.  This episode of Inside The Archives looks at why the unlikely revival of the cassette tape has taken place, whether or not it's a flash in the pan, and offering an explanation for the format's newfound popularity. Joining me is Doug Kaplan, co-owner of the Chicago record label Hausu Mountain. Kaplan specializes in releasing music on tape and has built an extensive network of like-minded musicians using cassette tape to share and release music.  Inside The Archives is available on Apple Podcasts and RADIO.COM.  Subscribe to the podcast, leave a rating and a review, and listen to every single episode.   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and Coachella are the three biggest music festivals in the United States. After all three lineups were released this past year, a common sentiment online was that they were all kind of the same.  Is this actually the case though?

On the surface, it appears the live album is no longer a force. The seeming decline of live records makes it look like a novelty more than a driving force to present your music. However, that couldn't be further from the truth. XRT's night guy Ryan Arnold joins us to discuss how musicians have reinvented the way they distribute their live material to fans. It's just as powerful as ever and can have the exact same impact as it did for listeners of live records 40 years ago. Plus, we dig into the results of our poll asking XRT's social media followers to name their favorite live album that's been released in the past ten years.

One of the most discussed topics in music this year was the similarity between Greta Van Fleet and Led Zeppelin. Regardless of where you stand on their music, they have been able to generate conversation like few rock bands have over the past decade. In other genres, sounding similar to other artists can be seen as an honor or paying tribute to them. In rock, it can act as a stigma? Why is that? XRT Morning Show host Lin Brehmer joins Inside The Archives to provide a historical perspective and answer that question. Inside The Archives is available on iTunes.
