Vinyl's back. Do you listen to vinyl?
No, I don't really listen to vinyl. I have a lot of vinyl stored away. My father had a lot of 78s but I don't know what to do with them. I grew up listening to a lot of jazz and big band music and contemporary, like he had Yma Sumaz and Perez Prado records too. He was a jazz guitar player, so I heard a lot of music growing up.
I hate CDs, the cover's always broken. I prefer tapes to CDs. But I've gone digital now. The sound is not as good, but at least I can access things when I want to hear it.
It's streamlined. You don't have to think about it.
You have to wonder though, what's going to happen to it when... I have all these records, but what's going to happen to all of that digital music.
You're right, it's like just out there, nothing solid. I never thought about that. Because it's not actually on anything.
I know there's a hard version of everything somewhere.
If ever iPods all died, what would be do? The musical apocalypse.
