I don't remember the last time I played a CD in anything. Been quite a while. Between Sirius/XM, Pandora/Entune, bluetooth....no need for a bunch of CDs taking up space.

It's been a couple years since I've inserted a CD.

I had an in-dash 8 track in my 69 Camaro (my first car). I think it was a Craig and I had Jensen 6x9's in the rear deck. Yes, I'm old...

As to the topic: I never used the CD in my 2000 truck, not used it in my 2004 Porsche, not used it in the Taco yet. I listen to talk radio (sports & Politics) or XM music.

ETA: Come to think of it, I didn't use the CD in either of my Corvettes, either the 93 or the 98. The 98 had a 6 cd changer in it (so does the Porsche). My Wife uses hers ALL the time though so she makes up for me.

I put my Sirius in my work truck and yes I do listen to my cd player steady. actually just bought a cheap mp3 player to go to the gym with, and just upgraded to a smartphone a few months ago. I hate keeping up with technology!

I installed a Kenwood Media receiver in my truck about two years ago and have never missed the CD slot/changer one bit. Runs off an old IPod.

Spent a week punching cards for a mortgage amortization table calculator.
Test run program, verify output from daisy-wheel printer... then spend the next week finding the card with the error.

Realize the program was running properly, the printer ran out of paper because I set the payment $10 /month below the interest.
Apologize to math analysis teacher for wasting paper.

Never had a CD in my truck yet. XM radio & Aux gets the music to the speakers.

I get much better audio volume from my CD player than I do when I use my aux input. Maybe I need some kind of booster.

One of these days I want to back them up on my ext. HD, but that will be a long and tedious chore.

I use my CD player and Bluetooth since some songs sound better from a CD compared to bluetooth

Yup, use the CD player every time I get in the truck. I don't have a fancy satellite radio or a hand-held music player to plug up. Hell, I don't even have radio. No antenna on the truck- previous owner broke it off down far enough to where I'm going to have to drill it out to put another one on. But I do have an antenna ready for that when the time comes- pulled one off my buddy's '89 Camaro after we yanked the engine before sending it to the scrapper. Still got tape players in both of our vans, the Honda didn't have any music. And got a couple 8-track players from some of our old cars in the garage.

Holy old school. I love the fact that you used "fancy" in your post too. Reminds me of the "Grumpy Old Man" skit from Saturday Night Live - circa mid nineties.
"And we didn't have yer fancy tooth brushes. We just let our teeth rot, AND WE LIKED IT!"
