I do in my car because I don't have an auxiliary thing. I'd love to get a car stereo that had blue tooth to link the music from my phone, but I mainly listen to the radio in there, anyway. At home it's almost exclusively Pandora or music from my Google cloud.
I have a George Strait CD in my car, I honestly don't know where any of my other CDs are.
I do in my car as well.

Yes I do. I'm behind the times when it comes to technology.
Well yeah. You've got a foot in the grave. My mom, who is 20 years older than you, wants to get a smartphone. I'm trying really hard to talk her out of it because she'll be calling me everyday asking me questions.
I do in the car still.
I was just informed recently that my smartphone had come in at work, so I will be using one for the first time myself soon. Can I call you if I have questions?
It's actually kind of sad because I was quite the cd burner back in the day. I even made my own labels. Napster was good times. But now if I see a cd laying around, I more than likely throw it in the trash. I actually wish I had a record player.
Sure, if you can figure out how to make a call on it.
Not very often. Occasionally I'll listen to one in the car. At home it's almost always either my itunes or pandora. In the car it's usually the radio or I'll plug my ipod into a FM transmitter.
Get one. They are pretty cheap. You can find a good one for under 200 bucks and even less if you look around.
Once you do, you will hear what music really sounded like before the man sold you the MP3 bull.
Old albums are cheap online. They might have some scratches but hey they are the real thing.
You can find some of those D Hicks for a song. Before that, he went by the name of the Charlatans. Because they were. Lol.
Before there was space or time there was rock and roll.
I have dug through Good Will many times searching for records for my sister. She has quite the collection. You can find some good ones there.
I do love to listen to vinyl but... I'm a fan of mp3 bull. Can't fit records in my purse or pocket...
I have a couple spare CD's in the car for emergency tunes (Car Wash?). But no, if for some reason I receive a CD, it will immediately be ripped to a computer and put in the cloud.
What's your method in the car? Stream it from cloud from your phone through the stereo via blue tooth?
I have an iPhone with iTunes Match and I also have Spotify - In my old car, I bought an iPhone adapter for less than $200 that I hooked into an extra CD plugin. I slipped the adapter behind the stereo and ran the cord up through the carpet. In my new car, it has an aux input, which doesn't let you control or display anything through the radio, but I'm usually controlling it through the iPhone anyways. No biggie there. I just put the cord away when I'm not using it because I hate looking at it. Wireless streaming would be nice, but I think the quality and reliability would be of concern.
After having a couple differebt modulators for my ipod that were horrible (a cheap $20, and a $70 monster brand) i got a $90 thing from New Potato brand this christmas......there is an app on the phone that controls the thing and the phone connects to the part that plugs into the lighter via bluetooth (and you can connect a cord to charge). It is working great so far
Just rip all your cd's and take em to half priced books or something
Huh. Never heard of that. Keep me posted on how well it works.
The last cd i bought was foo fighters last one, and i got it a week after i saw them (although i already had visited the pirate bay prior to it). Any cd i get, typically is from punk shows that have good opening bands.
For example, i have seen a band from minneapolis (dillinger four) play a handful of times---they were supposed to open for nofx in september before it got postponed til last month)....from those times seeing D4, i have bought cd's from the bands toys that kill, tiltwheel, the brokedowns, the arrivals....all bands that i have seen open for them, and purchased their cd at the show
It works pretty well, it took me a few stations before i found one that wasnt crackly but its been working great. I have seen reviews that have complained about sound, but if i was an audiophile, i would just get a deck with a jack
