Remember slipping your fingernail into the poly wrapper of a 33 1/3 LP record, pulling out the disc and carefully placing it on the spindle of your record player? That was when listening to music was a participatory activity –not today’s sedentary push-a-button-and-play-whatever-ITunes-tells-you-to ritual.
