Re: throw away society

Exactly!  I have many LPs (most of them well over 30 years old) and
quite a few tapes, as well.  Don't even own a CD (music) as of yet
and manage to survive quite well, thank you - and rather resent the
fact that all this is "obsolete"...another ploy to make us buy new
stuff IMO.  I mean, if you want the new, fine, but you shouldn't be
forced to give up the old when it works fine but you can't fix the
thing it works on as they don't exist anymore...aaarrrggghh!
