My first cassette was when I was four... Bad animals by heart. I could sing that aaaaalllllll day. Then I got older, realized it was about sex, and that my parents probably played my cassette in the bedroom.

I don't listen to heart anymore.

Vinyl era here. Growing up in the 60's my Dad had a side job working on pinball machines and jukeboxes. I had my own pinball machine in my room and an absolutely HUGE collection of 45's. I'd give anything to have all the 45's I accumulated from when he would change out the old discs for new releases.

Earliest memories are vinyl. Folk's had a huge cabinet that had a record player inside when you flip open the top.

I remember listening to a compilation record with "Take This Job and Shove It" by Johnny Paycheck (David Allen Coe)..... :drink40:

You recall those weird Christmas gifts from Grandma, well one of mine was this, the first music I ever owned:


Yep.......Culture Club. :o

Can easily say I was a bit blown away opening this present as a little kid...

As for the first music I ever bought myself, that was a cassette and it was this one:



That evolved into joining Columbia House and BMG and slowly acquiring a ton of rock cassettes which transitioned mostly into rap.

Went to college in '92 and in the fall I stumbled onto somebody selling a used Teac CD player for $75.


That allowed me to purchase my very first CD:


Funny thing about that Teac CD player, it was a POS that would barely play CD's.

It would ALWAYS throw an error code. :aggressive:

But, strangely I had one CD that somehow would always play and would "fix" the error code:


OK, I'm done.

How's that for a musical story.......
