Just did a road trip in my newer car, sans CD player, but I managed to link a wireless player to the car's Bluetooth so it played through the sound system. So I guess I'm a Luddite with some techie skills.

Quote from: AmLitHist on June 02, 2023, 09:15:35 AMK16, your post reminded me of my 5th/6th grade teacher many years ago, who subscribed to the Time-Life or similar series of music. (It would have been on LPs, I think, or maybe cassettes? Way before the advent of CDs!) If the class had "been good" that day/week, he'd spend the last hour of the day* letting us do our reading or other homework on Thursday or Friday afternoons listening to some of his music.* This was WAY back in around 1970 or so, when our little rural school had just one teacher for each grade, who taught all the classes--no changing classrooms or teachers for us, until we went to town to high school! That made the chance to listen to records a special treat to break the monotony for all of us. Good times (and I wonder how any of us managed to grow up to amount to anything, without all the specialization and enrichment that K-12 provides today?)!Thanks for reminding me of that nice memory!
