Another great reason.
I remember this past summerr at the Eckville "shelter" in Pennsylvania.
(more of a hostel, really).
The caretaker had one those digital dishes, and had one of the music
While swigging a Mountain Dew and chomping on an ice cream sandwich, I
start to hear the familiar one string solo of B.B. King in "Sweet
Sixteen". Wow! I am huge blues fan, and missed my music quite a bit on
my hike. To hear some B.B. King (which was quickly followed by some S.R.
Vaughn) was simply magical. If I brought a cassette walkman, I do not
think hearing that sweet solo would have held the same sense of
excitement and wonder for me.
