It was just over a year ago that I was contemplating getting an MP3 player and I certainly would have got one except I didn’t know what one was 🙂 (See my earlier blog by clicking on “Old Geek ” 3 in the tag cloud)
Luckily for me Santa Claus spends a lot of time in the clouds at this time of year and must have been reading my blog. So in my 2014 Christmas stocking I found a little black plastic thingy which my son Tom told me was an MP3 player. He had kindly uploaded 34 CD’s on to it — about 1500 tracks !
Now all I have to do is get into “Sky Ferreira”, “Smog”, “Wannadies “, “Warpaint”, “Screaming Trees”,”Mazzy Star”, “Meat Puppets” and “Half man half biscuit”. Obviously Tom doesn’t listen to Frank Sinatra or even the Rolling Stones.
Still it will be good for my musical education and a whole lot easier than dragging that record player around. A pity that I forgot to ask Santa for a baseball hat, dark glasses and some Converse trainers !
