    I'm pretty sure my last tape was Boys II Men's II. First CD would have been a couple of months later, but for the life of me I can't remember what it would have been. Probably something of that genre.

    I don't remember my last vinyl, but I could probably figure it out when I go home to my parents' for Thanksgiving.

    Last cassette: probably "The Story of the Clash in 1988. I already had a CD player, but I was in London and it wasn't available on CD over there at the time.

    First CD: Big Audio Dynamite, "No. 10 Upping Street" in 1987.

    Last vinyl: I used to DJ, so I was picking up vinyl well into the 90s. I honestly could not tell you.

    Last cassette: I was on a road trip to St. Louis in 1999, didn't have a CD player in my car and forgot my mix tapes, and I bought Kid Rock at a Wal-Mart.

    First CD: Frankie Goes To Hollywood. I think it was early 1986; our family got a very early start on CDs.

    I should submit a fourth category: First MP3 download?

    Oh shit. I just remembered that when I made my last move and drove a 24-foot truck for 15 hours, I bought cassettes of Lynyrd Skynryd's Second Helping, The Best Of Hot Chocolate and some Bobby Womack greatest hits tape at a truck stop.

    Hot Chocolate is underrated.

    I can't believe so many people can remember.
    My first record was either Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' or Billy Joel's 'Glass Houses.'
    I think it was the latter.

    Vinyl: Miles Davis' Bitches Brew

    Cassette: Not sure, but probably a Grateful Dead bootleg

    First CD: It was a gift, Neil Young's Keep on Rockin in the Free World

    Since I realy don't plan on buying another CD -- going strictly digital -- I'd say my last CD was Tom Petty's new one, Highway Companion

    I think the last vinyl album was a box set of Springsteen with three albums in the mid to late 1980s.

    I purchased cassettes almost exclusively from 1977 to 1992. I had a cassette player in the first new car I ever bought in 1977 because I used to make tapes of sports announcers and study them. In 1977, 8-tracks (for you kids in the audience, ask your parents or grandparents about that ;) ] were more popular than cassettes and there were albums which you could get on vinyl and 8-tracks that you couldn't get on cassettes. By the time I got my next car, 8-tracks were pretty much history. However, I bought an old car in 2000 and it had a cassette player, so I kept on with the cassette I had.

    I would say the last cassette I purchased was probably about three years ago - they had a clearance sale of cassettes at Tower Records and I got some. Now Tower Records in in bankruptcy.

    Vinyl - got a Billy Joel ( :) ) Innocent Man record for Christmas one year. Around that time, tapes became No. 1. My last tape was Tom Petty's Full Moon Fever.
