Are CD's going to become "obsolete" like records did in the 90's then will they be revived in 30 years as a "compact way to transport and listen to music"? New cars do NOT come with CD players, at least Hondas do not. Pity. "Everybody downloads now" is the thought. I have a shelf with about 200 CDs....just enough to always be able to find something fresh to listen to. AND I have WFMU on my phone through my stereo.

@Neil Having worked at a record store during much of the recent vinyl resurgence, I'd say CDs will definitely come back, at least to a growing sect of diehards. They still have a lot going for them (more permanent than digital, more compact, versatile, and reparable than vinyl, plus the endless quality debate). I can even imagine a second wave of Nuggets-style rediscovery of tiny alt-bands who self-produced CDs.

...true CD's have been maligned, but it's mostly the playback device at fault if you have a proper CD player you will hear stuff you never heard before, it's rather surprising, what a difference it makes. Then there are some recordings that are 'CD only' so those will always have value.

@Dean: So jealous. Like Gaylord Fields, I almost charted a plane to London when they did that one-off reunion a few years ago.

Must have been 1980, this show: https://www.cdandlp.com/en/cabaret-voltaire-young-marble-giants-monitor/sokol-hall-wed.-oct.-29-usa-80s-ltd-original-promo-concert-poster-flyer/poster-display/r116410704/

Forgot about Monitor! I recall learning that evening about the availability of Throbbing Gristle's box of 24 hours of cassette recordings.

This track from the Shining S/T reminds me of Angel Radio, an internet station for seniors out of the UK. angelradio.co.uk
