The Interwebs Plays Requests!

When I was a new music loving youth, at some point near the end of the seventies, people listened to whatever was on the radio or an LP from the ol record collection. As a teenager who hustled and worked, I had a fair sized record collection of almost twelve LP's. Unfortunately, my brother and I had just about equal anger management issues, which resulted in my turntable's arm getting amputated, as well as most of my records getting flung against the wall. All rage past, we smoked a few doobies and my brother kindly sold me his 8-track hi-fi receiver. The best part of the deal was that the rig came with two 8-track tapes. Ted Nugent's Ted Nugent, plus Aerosmith Get Your Wings. For almost a year those were what I rocked out with for several hours a day; singing along and pounding out beats on my Remo practice pad. And with a AOR FM station for supplement that was all I needed. Nowadays my iPod has over 700 albums, so it's rare for me to listen to the same album more than three times in a week before it gets shuffled off to be forgotten about until something triggers my memory of it's existence and subsequent playing. To me the most awesome part of today in music access is the near instant ability to hear any damn song that my mind's ear desires. All one need do is tap their fat fingers upon the phone screen and then tell a technologically illiterate old person, "This is the song I was telling you about." Sometimes I get the reply, "Don't Play That Song." Mr. Ben E. King folks.
