Sometime in the last 2 years I have stopped needing music. I still crave specific songs occasionally, and when I'm borrowing a car and driving around, I do tend to scan the channels. But 98% of the time now when I want sound, I turn on NPR.
Combine this change with my past accumulation of obsolescent technology and a recent move, and you have...the great CD give away! See something you like? Contact me and I will send it to you (or, for Seattleites, bring it by the next time we hang). See something you gave me? Please don't take it personally that your musical offering did not make the cut and the soundtrack to "Follow that Bird" did. See something that I borrowed from you and forgot about? Sorry! Let me know.
