That 8-Track Guy (from La Crosse Wisconsin)


(Al doesn't have a website.  "Anything newer than 1980, I don't even want to mess with.")

Link to August 2 La Crosse Tribune article, "Monday profile:  Al Doucet is 'that 8-track guy'".  (And republished all over the place today.)

Excerpt: It is the granddaddy of obsolete music machinery. That's right, we're talking about the 8-track player. Even when it was new, it seemed old and clunky. And then there was that annoying break in the song when the player would switch tracks.

None of that bothers Al Doucet, who grew his passion for 8-tracks from a hobby to a side business.

He bills himself as That 8-Track Guy, and, yes, he has a lot of them
