I have three stereos in the house with a combined wattage of 250 watts plus a top notch Grundig in the kitchen, a cd/cassette boombox and a cd/radio alarm by my bed. Even though I do not have a garage dedicated stereo, like many do, it is not like I have much need for more shit that will play music for me.
But I got another piece to add to the collection. Like much of the stereo equipment I have it came to me second hand. Got one of those all white Apple speakers to listen to music from my home computer (itself second hand) and mobile devices. I am quite sure there are better such speakers out there but it sure sounds good to my ears.
Today I turned to a couple football games on the television (sound turned down/closed captioning turned on), read a book (The Christina Lake Bear Dude story) and tuned into WDVX-FM and their Sunday hillbilly jamboree all fucking day.
Made cranberry muffins while I was it. Hard to beat Dope City cranberries this time of year. Tart as an old downtown whore.
When I was testing the Apple speaker in the store I found it in the sales girl stuck close by me to make sure I did not sneak out the door with it. Place sells few items worth as much as the price tag they had stuck to it.
I tuned in WDVX-FM. They were playing some fine old country music as usual.
The sales girl was impressed. "That sounds so good. What station is that?"
"Why it's WDVX-FM from Knoxville, Tennessee. Great music all day and no fucking commercials," I told her.
She wrote the call letters down. Girls here in Steepleton like their country music. Makes them want to do things the Lord would prefer they did not.
