Friday Night Tunes

The CD Player was born this month, and I, as an early adopter, bought one (from the now defunct Tweeter, Etc. on Thayer street in Providence), and I paid $500 in 1983 dollars to get far less technology than what goes for under $100 today.

I got five CDs at the same time, including Synchronicity, by The Police. But it turns out that Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA was the first CD released in the United States.

So that’s why it gets the Friday tunes treatment.

Have a great weekend.
