No-Stalgia: A Memory Problem

They say that most people under the age of 30 these days wouldn’t recognize the sound of a needle scratching across a record. And why would they? I wonder how many of them have even seen a record player. Would they know how to use it? Would they know the difference between a 33 and a 45? Would they know how to change a needle, how to lift the arm to put it on the right track? I haven’t owned a record player for 30 years. Which is why it bothers me when I hear people say that vinyl records sound better than digital playbacks. I guess some people enjoy pops and clicks and skips in their music, but not me. There will always be some people who think the “good old days” were better. I used to work with a guy who insisted on using a fountain pen long after computers were common at the workplace. Sometimes I think about him and wonder where he’s starving now. Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
