My 2004 Jag came with a cassette deck
that's some Ford-inspired bean-counting right there

Cassette decks were preferable to CD players when mp3 players were becoming the norm,
as you could stick one of those dummy cassettes in that carried music from your ipod.

I remember them
I was working in radio when Ofcom was created, and their first act was to ban those little FM transmitters that let you broadcast your mp3 player to your car stereo, because FM broadcast licences were restricted and cost about 10k each per 28 days.

Keith Moon had a record player in his Rolls
And a speaker behind the front grille, I believe

it was a Bentley
'At some point earlier, The Who's bassist, John Entwistle, shared ownership with Moon of a one-off Bentley designed by UK coachbuilders Freestone and Webb which debuted at the 1950 Geneva Motor Show. The two had it fitted out with a Tannoy speaker behind the grille and "deployed it in a series of Pythonesque practical jokes," according to reporter Richard Fleury. "These typically involved cruising through Home Counties villages impersonating the local Tory candidate, warning of imminent invasions by boatloads of refugees. Or they'd pose as police hunting for deadly snakes. The concealed PA gave Moon so much pleasure he installed it in his next purchase, a "vast" two-tone S1 Bentley converted to look like an S2." (note: this S1 was the one with which Moon accidentally killed his chauffeur, and was subsequently sold).'
