We live in a vast productive time with many options. Once there was radio, as a child on Saturday mornings listening and enjoyed stories, then as teenager watched local television that ran until midnight with a the test patterns that buzzed, or listened to the rockn'roll stations from Denver and Texas. Today we have the explosion of media, from once records, to tapes, to CDs, and DVDs, to today streaming songs and movies free or for a small charge on computer or TV screens, and on smart phones.
