Lou Ottens, Inventor Of The Cassette Tape, Has Died Bill Chappell / NPR – “The cassette tape was Ottens’ answer to the large reel-to-reel tapes that provided high-quality sound but were seen as too clunky and expensive….

The result was unveiled to the world in 1963, and the ‘compact cassette’ quickly took off…. Ottens’ original wooden prototype for the cassette “was lost when Lou used it to prop up his jack while change a flat tire.”
