All this has a special significance for radio stations..these people invest who knows, multiple thousands of dollars in Cds, and hopefully their investment wont dry up and blow away after so many years!

Daffy,

I think most radio stations have all their music on computer. I don't think they actually go and grab a CD and pop into the player anymore. It's all programmed by computer. If they want a song they just "punch" it up.

Me too. The had stacks of wax and racks of tracks baby!! Now most of them don't even have real DJ's. No D's to J. It's very possibile that no matter where you are, even in larger cities, you may be listening to a canned/syndicated program.

You know, what really got me started to thinking about all this is when I read somewhere that some very old vintage movies going WAY back to the start of film making were discovered in a vault...ROTTED and DECAYED to stinking worthlessness.

I happen to love old films, and I just thought: "Man. That is part of our film making heritage. It is gone FOREVER. Turned to dust. Never to be seen by future generations. and never to be recreated.*

Well, it wasn't much of a jump in my thought line to conclude that the same thing could someday be the fate of our music heritage in this country.

But now we have DVDs and Cds, and everything is happy. For a few hundred years at least. But then what?

Sure, the earth itself will be long gone by then anyway, but that is beside the point. The point is how many future generations will be able to view and listen to what we today take for granted, but will then be ancient history?

Nobody knows. Nothing on this earth is eternal. But I would sleep better at night knowing that the artists I love to listen to will be around for a long, long time.

I know you said the radio stations have it all programed on computer, but there is always a nemesis to everything! It starts with a "V" and ends with a an "irus."

Oh well. (sigh)

*happily, since the discovery of the rotted films, there is now a society dedicated to restoring old films and preserving them. So Jimmy stewart will still be able to keep running down the street every December yelling ;" Merry Christmas Bedford Falls! Merry Christmas Mr. Potter! Merry Christmas You old savings and loan!"

Okay, here's a way out thought: you've heard that radio waves and television waves go on forever, right? Like Pluto is watching the premier episode of Hazel right now. Well then, howzabout all info everywhere of everysort gets broadcasted and just have it reflect back and forth, around the globe and...keep up with me...
all information is always available. You just need to tune in to it with the right device. An information receiver / descrabler device.
