Why Play a Music CD? ‘No Ads, No Privacy Terrors, No Algorithms’

To be honest, my preferred way to listen to music is on CD, as unfashionable as that might be. You push a button, the music plays, and then it’s over — no ads, no privacy terrors, no algorithms!

Ben Sisario, of The New York Times, is right. CDs are still shockingly convenient, although I do tend to rip them and then send them off to be recycled. Plus, as long as you have the physical disc or the file, you always have your music.

He also prints out his writing drafts, as do I!
