I’ve been using my iPod shuffle for exercising and playing through my car stereo (Transpod FM transmitter) for almost a year now. I’ve only listened to radio under duress or forgetfulness.
But the last few weeks, I’ve left the pod home and re-inserted some CDs. This is only because I am trying to sell the 1999 VW Bug (low miles! great body shape! Flower Vase!), and I wanted to be sure the stereo on multidisc changer worked well.
The surreal moment was driving to work (last week when I had to drive to work at my “old” job), and I was saying, “Wow, this random shuffle is sure bringing me a whole lot of Stevie Ray Vaughan songs in a row” when I realized the reason for this was it was on a CD, that old technology that played the songs in the same order.
Now where did I leave those 8-Tracks?
