A Celebration of Retro Media: Vinyl, Cassettes, VHS, and Polaroid Too

In going digital, we've gained some convenience. That's undeniable. But we've lost much when it comes to aesthetics and quality too. (Neil Young makes that point again and again.) Increasingly, we're realizing what we've left behind, and there's a movement afoot to recover old school media -- things you can see, touch and feel and marvel over. Vinyl records. Tape cassettes. VHS tapes. 8mm Film. Polaroid Photos. All of that good stuff gets revisited in the latest short film produced in the PBS Off Book series. Previous installments have covered:
