EPISODE DESCRIPTION



















*******************************

TEXT: A subscription-based music service rekindled my passion for music.
MUSIC: Jerry Garcia – bonus track from Zabriskie Point’s soundtrack
Running time: 18’54”

*******************************

In early 2007 I found myself bored and not interested in bringing new music into my life. Soon after, I tested Napster’s subscription-based music service, and click! Browsing their huge catalogue feels the same as when – as a kid – I was walking through the aisles at my school’s library: fascinating! A couple of nights every week, I ‘m looking for new music with some sort of “Indiana Jones” passion. I like that!

Disclaimer.
This episode was not paid or ordered by Napster. It’s rather about a type of service that I enjoy. Napster is not the only subscription-based music service. *******************************
