Late Adopter.

I didn't get a CD player until the early/mid Nineties. I think the first one I had in a car was the one I installed in my 280ZX when I was working at the pawn shop/gun store in 1994.

I never used Napster, and continued to use the CD changer in the Zed Drei until it finally gave up the ghost a few years ago. I need to replace the head unit in that car so I can listen to music while driving again, but, you of these days. The radio still works and picks up NPR fine, so I keep putting it off.

Anyway, here's a neat animated chart showing the percentage of market share of various music formats, from 1973-2019. Watch the fall of 8 Track! The death and rebirth of vinyl! It's pretty neat.
