SET TO OLD TUNES
By Neel Anil Panicker
Old timers, and that would mean anyone who grew up in the sixties right up to the nineties would remember how they listened to music____on LPs, the circular venyl discs that played your favourite tracks, around twelve, split into two, wherein the other half you listened to by deftly lifting the and placing the electromagnetic needle on the periphery from where it slowly circles to the centre?
That seems ages from now when one consumes music on the go, anywhere and everywhere on a streaming platform that makes love to your ears even as you whisper sweet nothings into your love’s ears.
As for me, I pride myself on being in tune with the changing times but then there are days when I am swept away by a wave of nostalgia and I turn wistful and pine for those times when music went round and round make me swirl too in its magical folds.
