I just try and stay optimistic that at some point there will be just a tiny bit of good news.
I don’t think there’s any point in relying upon the dehumanising mainstream media merchants of doom for any good news.
However, as long as there’s plenty of good music to be enoyed and new music to be discovered, there will always be plenty to smile about.
As far as the equipment goes, if there’s one word to describe things today, it’s convenience.
Only yesterday I was thinking of those days before I even had a system, just a radio cassette unit.
Back then I had to ask friends or relations to copy onto tape the odd LP I was able to afford. I doubt whether they’d understand the gratitude I still feel towards them today.
Such a trivial thing to them, but it was the world to me.
From carefully saving up for vinyl LPs to casually streaming via a smartphone has been one amazing journey.
