The cassette tape was king until the compact disk or CD passed it in 1991. One Ozarks business never lost faith in the audio cassette and now, the National Audio Company in downtown Springfield, Missouri is the United States' only producer of magnetic tape for audio cassettes. Steve Stepp and Monte Chaney share the story of the resurgence of the audio cassette.
