    Today is National CD Player Day (anyone still own and play CDís ? )

    I still own, play and shop for Compact Discís. I play them in the pole barn, truck and campground.

    My latest oneís purchased was at a garage sale. Cheap Trick Greatest Hits and Billy Squier Greatest Hits. I paid $2.50 each.

    If I had more space to work with I still think I’d collect them


    Instead I feed into the Bezos beast a fair amount of times to listen too stuff

    I used to collect CDs when they were the main format but now I’ll only buy music on vinyl ($$$) or cassette ($). I love the tape cases, the j-card inserts, and the cassette shells and the creative way people design for them. I love tape players and the meticulous, finicky components that are always one play away from breaking, especially now with no high quality players being built and everything being original hardware from the 80s and 90s. That said, CDs are the way to go for young people who want to build a physical collection on a budget and anyone who wants to own music for $1-2 an album.

    I have a whole buttload of 60’s-80’s LPs in my basement. I also have a huge rack of CDs that I never listen to.

    I mostly listen to music off Amazon Prime these days.

    If you don't collect CDs, how do you keep crows out of your garden? You hang them from the scarecrow, they catch the light, and the crows run. Or fly.

    Or you could just play Nickelback and get the same results.

    I still listen to CDs, but I'm old.

    For the past year an a half, my commute is 1 1/2 hours- each way. Right before I switched offices (my commute before was 70 min), a mouse took out my car antenna. CDs are pretty much my only option as the radio only gets 2 or 3 stations without the antenna. Lots and lots of CDs. I will sometimes see how long I can go with the same song on repeat (it helps me not have time markers for the drive)/ The longest was "The Crossing"- a Bic Country outtake that oddly did not make the album of the same name. That lasted close to a month. Immigrant Song lasted 2 weeks.

    I definitely do. Then I rip them on to my hard drive and copy them over to a flash drive so I can listen to it in my car or at work.

    The CD Turns 40: How the ‘Shiny, Tiny’ Discs Took Over

    Oct. 1, 1982, in Japan, when Billy Joel‘s 52nd Street became the first-ever CD to go on sale, two electronics giants had been pushing for years to switch from the beloved vinyl LP to the shiny new digital-optical disc. Sony in Japan and Philips in Eindhoven, Netherlands, had invented the compact-disc hardware, and they were aggressively lobbying the world’s biggest labels to provide the software – music – to go with it.

    I got a new CD last year and fortunately I already put it on my flash drive but I played it in my car and then after a bit it stopped. Turns out the thing broke in my CD player.

    I still have an 8-track too. It's just boxed up somewhere in our storage of boxes. I believe I did come across a couple of 8 tracks I had that had survived all of these years. No idea if they can still play or not.

    I have been buying old record albums whenever I come across ones I like at local Goodwill stores. They are cheap and usually in very good condition. Like maybe played once or never. I like getting Christmas albums too. I think I have found most every one that I grew up listening to. I believe I like the sound from an LP better than any other sound too. Just very distinctive and clear to me.

    I still have all mine (500 or so) but I don't play them, I ripped them all into MP3's and house them on an external drive

    But I do miss album art and liner notes
