Even though Martha Quinn was a better VJ, I was still in love with Nina Blackwood...

However, time was not kind to poor Nina...

Remember how everyone was amazed that the original VJs had instant music stardom with just deploying a nice smile?

My first cassette player, a Hanimex purchased from a local drug store (!) for $29.95, would, every so slowly, get slower and slower as it played through one side of a tape. After half an hour you'd wonder why the music sounded wrong.

No one is spoiled?

I feel that I should comment, even though I'm only 19. I used a portable CD player when I was 7 if that counts tongue.gif. Anyway, my musical tastes are very picky (I very rarely like songs, no matter how many I find searching) so probably in total I would only want 1000 songs in my library (in lossless preferably). Right now though, my library only has ~700 songs. I feel if I have too many, then I never know what to play anyway.

1000 songs isn't exactly impossible using CDs in a CD player as a source, but I prefer digital for easy song changes (unless I like an entire album, which is okay on CD/vinyl). I think people always look positively on the past, no matter what technology we're looking at. Classic cars, tubes, vinyl, older-styled architecture, I could go on for pages. I find people that have lived longer are the ones that have ridiculously amounts of music (like 5000 songs) because they have lived through the popularity of many decades of music.

I'm so sorry but as the curator of this strange cultural excavation thread, you will not be able to proceed with any further posts here unless you can identify this photo without using Google image search.

My Grandad used to have a Ferguson Videostar toploader VHS cassette recorder and would only use Scotch VHS cassette tapes to record with smily_headphones1.gif

A "good" sound system was when the music was louder than the engine ignition hum.





As a teen, I wasn't really into portable audio. I was more into bedroom audio.
