I’ve lived a lifetime where I have experienced the changes in how we hear and see music. I remember we had in the dining room an 8 track player. It played these bulky square-ish things that were divided into programs. That was next to our huge record player! I remember seeing a TV Show where this guy collected 45s. I was 8 years old and that changed my life forever! It was after that story that I vowed I would be a record collector. I had a few 45s already but it wasn’t until my first purchase with my allowance money that the collection began. At one point I had counted around 745 45s and boxes and boxes of albums! BTW that first 45 was Disco Duck by Rick Dees and the cast of Idiots and my first album was the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack!! and I STILL have it!! I even have the insert that came with it of Disco products you could buy!
I heavily got into cassettes in the mid 80s when we got a small radio with tape player in our room. RECENTLY I found a couple of tapes of music I recorded off the radio. I used to pray they would play the song from the beginning without talking during it and play the song all the way to the end without cutting it off! Hey sometimes the best part of the song was at the end! It was during this period I bought my Sony Walkman!! I couldn’t believe that I could take my music out of the house and listen to it!! The Walkman is another significant moment that changed my life.
Cassette singles and cassette maxi singles followed. I worked at a now defunct record store that introduced me to CDs!! Remember when they were in the long rectangular cardboard packaging. The top half housed the CD, the bottom half was empty and a waste. The Discman followed. By now we had Videos, music video collection, concerts on VHS Tape! And I could tape things off the TV! My first music video tape was Madonna’s Justify My Love! It was naughty and banned by MTV, so I had to have it!
VHS tapes were faxed out when DVD was released! Another important moment was the invention of the iPod. As a birthday gift my best friends got me an iPod Mini (which they don’t make anymore). But it was almost a year before I hooked it up! For some weird reason, I fought the new online music wave! I wanted “hard copies” of things and I still valued the packaging.
So if you need anything transferred from one format to another, The Super Organizer do it for you! VHS TO DVD, Vinyl to CD to Mp3. My rates are affordable! So if you have that episode of Reba McIntyre on One Life to live from the 90s on VHS, we can convert it for you!
