Stream-ripping – the latest buzzword – or should that be a “buzzphrase”? Have people got nothing better to do with their time when music is so easily available in so many ways these days? It sounds a lot like recording your mates vinyl records on your cassette recorder to me (ah, the good old days!), which just makes it a variation on a very old theme.
I used to have hundreds of cassettes recorded from various sources including friends and even the local lending library. I used to play them in the car but most of them never ever got played that much. I think I slung most of them in the bin in the end I’m ashamed to say.
