I guess things have come full circle for me. I'm currently driving a 1998 POS car (if you don't know what POS stands for, look it up) with over 200,000 miles and a really, really bad cassette deck/radio. The cassette deck barely works, and besides, it's a cassette deck! I can't find a single radio station worth listening to, so I went back to 70's technology and got an MP3 converter. It plugs into the cigarette lighter and broadcasts whatever MP3 content is loaded via either a USB thumb drive or SD card through an unused spot on the FM dial. I have several friends who are also old garage rockers, and we trade MP3's back and forth. We burn them off of old vinyl or download them. I've found more than a few of the great old songs that Brother Love would play on WAMO-FM. I even found some of the songs I only heard on KQV-FM when Ed Sherlock was on the air, like "Glass" by the Sandpipers. What I find really funny is that when the teenagers who play in my church's band with me hear my MP3s of old stuff from the 60s and 70s, they like it and want copies for themselves. Most of them say they like the sound of old "classic" rock better than most of the new stuff, though they've turned me on to some really great new music they discovered through channels other than OTA radio. Imagine that, brand new "old classic rock" songs!
