If someone didn't own a record or knew someone who would loan out a copy (a good way to lose your vinyl) then you weren't going to play it. Today you can listen to anything almost anywhere and everyone thinks they're a genius cause they can Google the answer. Harlan Ellison called TV the glass teat. Now we're all connected to a 1000 teats at a time. I'm sure that'll work out well.
