Here is a comment that is sooooooooo true:
I'll bet I know why there were a bunch of hits on the blogsite...the realism of the broadcast & airchecks, and along with the memories, the "pop" of the needle as it played through the quiet spot on the King Crimson selection!
Listening to today's Beaker Street feels so....well, sterile...CD's leave something to be desired where memories are revived....Bud, Mobile, AL
Thanks Bud, all of us old timers were so glad to see CDs come along, that we overlooked the cold digital sound.
We were also glad to see solid state replace noisy tubes and A.C. hum. Now the hip thing seems to be vinyl coming back and folks paying a fortune for tube amplifiers.
I guess "the sound" was really good after all.
