  1. How do you get your music these days?

    (UPDATE 2011-07-11 - Version française au http://itywltmt.blogspot.com/2011/07...ver-de-la.html)

    This blog post is in response to an interesting thread I encountered, posted by Kjohnson on April 20, 2011.

    What an interesting topic! I have been collecting music for over 30 years and, indeed, technology has changed, and so has our ways of acquiring music. When I started (probably when most of us started) the technologie du jour was vinyl. From
