Convenient but predictable

Loyal reader Fred passes along a great read about a music professor who has traced the history of how recordings have changed our perceptions of music.

Hard to believe that just a few generations ago, anyone who wanted to hear music had to go to a local hall or play it on a piano. Then we had fragile vinyl for a couple of generations. Then 8-tracks, the goofiest invention I can remember in my lifetime. And now the CD age has come … and possibly gone already.

Funny how the most convenient music becomes, the more disposable it seems.
