Thread Name: Tech: Do people still print or buy CDs?
Subject: RE: Tech: Do people still print or buy CDs?
last year a performer thanked me by giving me a download card. So I downloaded, listened once & forgot it (oops) I also never play the other stuff I've put into my iTunes library in the past, even tho several of the not very large number are rarities.

Between lockdowns I ruthlessly got rid of ~500 CDs I was not playing, I only kept 2 shelves. 250 Oz CDs went to a community radio station, others to charity shops & friends, others have become lucky door prizes at my folk club. I only kept those I loved & play. I very occasionally buy new ones, & sometimes pick up unwanted CDs.

I like to own stuff & would never join a streaming service, besides my phone is a sensible phone & not connected to the net!
