I've always listened to music.
I remember at ten, washing the supper dishes (that was one of my chores) while listening and singing along to my mother's Charlie Pride cassette.
I bought cassettes and CDs all the time. I swore I always would.
But I don't.
I've bought less then ten CDs in the last ten years. The last one I bought was Some Hearts by Carrie Underwood last summer.
I don't own a portable CD player or iPod.
I do have a cassette player, though. Ha!
Yet I still listen to music quite often.
We have digital cable so, in addition to getting the MuchMusic channels, we get about 40 music stations ranging from today's tunes to oldies. Plus I tune in to Internet music stations. And I listen to the radio while driving.
Remember the days when the whole album was awesome, not just one song, so it was worth buying? Supertramp's Breakfast in America. Eagles' The Long Run.
