Corvette Diner Invites Guests to Unwind and Rewind As They Mark the 50th Anniversary of the Cassette Tape

October 26, 2013

To celebrate the milestone 50th anniversary of the iconic cassette tape, Carlsbad’s Museum of Making Music and Corvette Diner have partnered to present a unique mobile exhibit packed with throwback artifacts and interesting trivia.  The Museum of Making Music dug deep into their archives to create a display containing everything from the oldest version of the cassette tape, to the various audio devices used long before digital streaming was available. Corvette Diner will pay tribute to the oldies but goodies that led us to the innovations of today’s musical landscape.

For the entire month of November, Corvette Diner will be home to a nearly seven foot tall display, which includes everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the cassette tape’s vibrant history as well as two colorful display cases packed with classic cassettes, ranging from Neil Diamond to The Rolling Stones.  The exhibit traces the five-decade history of the cassette tape - from its humble beginnings in 1963 to its prominence as the portable music medium of choice in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

Nearly gone but certainly not forgotten, the compact cassette tape became an iconic symbol of an entire generation, as well as a critical stepping-stone between the long–playing record and today's current digital devices. The Corvette Diner will also donate 15% of sales on Thursday evenings throughout Novemeber to the Museum of Making Music throughout the month.

So visit the Corvette Diner in Liberty Station during the entire month of November to take a step back in time and explore the cassette's origins, rise in popularity, decline and nostalgic comeback.

Corvette Diner is located at 2965 Historic Decatur Road and is open seven days a week. Please call (619)-542-1476 or visit for hours of operation or for further information.
