Remember when home taping was killing music?...

''Back in 1906 the composer John Philip Sousa predicted “a marked deterioration” in musical tastes as newfangled gramophones “reduce the expression of music to a mathematical system of megaphones, wheels, cogs, disks, cylinders and all manner of revolving things”. Similar battles were fought over the printing press, photocopier, mechanical piano, radio and television. Remember how home taping was going to kill music a generation ago? Music seems to have survived.''
