Old school cool

Feb 27, 2009

If you are anything like me, you sit at your computer listening to the thousands of songs your have encoded into iTunes thinking, “This is all very good but I want to listen to all my old stuff that I have on vinyl and cassette”.

Well today I found the next best thing…. http://www.spotify.co.uk

It looks like iTunes but is actually an internet radio streamer I suppose, but you choose exactly what to listen to, not just “artists like….” type choices.

I have spent all morning listening to it with no problems, reliving all my old classics such as <embarassment cloak> T’Pau, W.A.S.P., Pat Benatar, Magnum, Daisy Chainsaw, SugarCubes </embarassment cloak>. All stuff that I have on ancient formats but don’t want to fork out good money to own again on CD/MP3.

Its worth checking it out.
