As far as i am able to remember back i liked to listen to music. It started when i grew up in the sixties with listening to the radio playing Beatles, Rolling Stones and Elvis Presley.
I think the biggest music event in the sixties was Woodstock. Just in case you have not heard about Woodstock just follow the link to find out.
Beginning with the seventies i got a stereo music tuner and a reel to reel tape recorder. At that time we did build our amplifiers at home. I had a kit (also from Radio Rim like my above mentioned short wave receiver) with 2 times EL 34 in each channel for power amp.
Here a legal method to get MP3 Files over the internet (in German).
