You're going to need some time to sit down for this one this week. In case you haven't yet, please read NPR intern Emily White's blog
. Then read professor and ex-musician David Lowery's response
. Then read Travis Morrison of The Dismemberment Plan's response
to Lowery. If you make it through all of that, I've got some thoughts on all three pieces here
. What I want you to think about this week is the tangible ownership of music. If there's one vinyl record or CD in your collection that you would never part with, why? When and where did you get it, and is there a story behind it? Would love to hear why the tangible medium will never die from music fans instead of the press.
