The first CD ever printed---ABBA's

Today CD sales have declined as digital music dominates. But sales of vinyl records have continued to make a resurgence through the years. Because of their rich sound and retro snaps, crackles and pops. I still remember my first LP at the age of six – a record of classic symphonic works for children sealed with a long red wooden “batten”. I spent many hours stabbing wildly in the air while leading my invisible orchestra in the living room – and nearly gouged out my family’s eyes. Needless to say, my career as a guest conductor has been one of the best.

But if you’re in the area, I’m leading the Squirrel Philharmonic in Overture of 1812 on the Veranda Terrace tonight. Each ticket is of 10 almonds only. For an extra five, we’ll let you take shelter in our basement when the cannons start going off. (Those tree mice really love their ammo.)

Have a nice Thursday. The floor is open… What are you cheering for today?
