General Meeting Topic – September 2020

How Technology Has Changed the Way We Listen to Music (E)
Wednesday, September 16th, 2020
7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time
 
Join us virtually (via Zoom) as Ray Baxter, APCUG Treasurer/Acting President, and the President of the Payson Area Computer Society presents this month’s presentation. We are going to explore how technology has changed the way we listen to music.

This topic is a part of a two-part presentation: a quick review of our music listening habits during the last 65 years and a look at today’s download and streaming offerings. From 78s to 45s, LPs, the 8-track tape, cassettes, the Walkman, Compact Discs, iPods, and more – Ray will cover it all.

Ray considers himself an early Rock and Roll historian and has a digital collection of over 45,000 songs that began when he first started collecting records (most of which he still has) in his pre-teenage years. When living in California, he was the President of the Doo-Wop Society of Southern California, a non-profit organization that, for almost 14 years, produced live quarterly musical stage shows featuring vocal groups of the 1950s.
