I am not kidding or exaggerating. I never thought of myself as a very music-orientated person. There were singers and bands I’d liked when I was the age to listen to TOTP, and when I bought a DVD player cheap to make my new home in a strange city a little bit more welcoming, I went down to HMV, looked along the shelves, and bought five names I recognised.
Two or three years later, I had gradually acquired about five more.
And then I discovered you could listen to music online.
And now I’m really not sure how many CDs I have. Lots.
