iTunes First Play: Coldplay Ghost Stories Wallpapers
Head on over to iTunes Radio to listen to Coldplay Ghost Stories and/or pre-order ($9.99). Sounds great, though this particular album is a bit of a downer — very, very mellow and hardly a bright, shiny moment.
And, here are the promised Ghost Stories wallpapers, too.
Record Coldplay Ghost Stories
More than a few times. Back in the day, I’d stay up late to record full albums on FM radio. Classic rock, first listen parties or just song after song with two-second interludes in the wee hours after the DJs went to bed.
In the ’80s and ’90s, that required a dual cassette deck and decent quality Maxell blanks (don’t forget to set the alarm and flip the tape)!
These days, Rogue Amoeba Software’s Piezo ($14.99) is the tool you need. From fiddly manual analog fun and games, costing hundreds, to a single cheap app running on a does everything iMac.
Piezo works equally well with iTunes Radio and PBS first listens.
Should we be reckoning how far we’ve come or fallen?
