In case anyone thinks that the music piracy argument is new - not so much. Before iPods and CDs, there was the mix tape:
I guarantee I am not the only one with a couple of tapes marked "Road Tunes" for playing while cruising the highway. For a while I was in the habit of buying an LP, listening to it a couple of times, and then putting the tracks onto a tape in an order I found pleasing. You may roll your eyes now, I don't care.
For me, it was less for road trips and more for college parties - how else could I ensure that a Blue Oyster Cut track or two made it into the soundtrack?
