You're thinking of Fidelipac cartridges... there was a big hole in the bottom of the case towards the front, iirc, and that was for the tape transport.  I sued to use them as well in the 70s in radio.  Pain in the butt to spool up, but you learned how to re-spool 8-track carts from that!

I'm curious -- do radio stations still use tape cartridges. At all 3 
stations I use to work at in the 70s and 80s these were out vehicle 
for commercials and some records. They are kind of like 8 tracks, but 
had no pinch roller. Ours were mono, but I am sure that two track 
stere versions existed.
