I'm sorry that I did't understand that magazines are the most important in today's industry. When my father was a sound engineer in the 50's to the 70's (and nothing to be proud about BTW) he dealt with the actual designers, and salesmen were just runners.
But since there will never be another Jagger or McCartney, who cares.
I am not sure if this is intended to be funny or funky. Whatever is intended 1200y, it sure isn't accuracy, and completely misses the mark on both counts. It may surprise you and your family to know that some of us (runners) were selling SME in the 60s early 70s.
As a Canadian and having lived in Saskatoon in the 50s (and over many parts of Canada) I was not enlightened to turntables until I came to Europe. In fact, I never saw a half decent record store until I lived in Ottawa in the 60s!
As for designers, some of these self appointed "dictators" during the "boom time" (of which I met a few) couldn't and didn't have the qualifications to build a rat trap, let alone a speaker or turntable.
Weird. I'm with you Blue Angel.
As far as I was aware, I can, in the UK copy my legit purchases of music onto another medium, for use in the car for instance. If the law changed or changes, then everything I have is on another medium, unless the law goes retrospective, in which case so will I.
