Show Notes Episode 317: It’s A Pirate’s Life For Me Part 1 Analog Days This week Host Dave Bledsoe attempts to charm the bartender with a mixtape he made for the bar consisting of songs about the drinks he would like to get for free, only to find his 80’s nostalgic gesture RUDELY rejected! (They broke his Walkman, throwing him out of Applebees. Again) On the show this week we take to the high seas of music piracy with all the ways we stole music before Sean Fanning freed the music in the year 2000! Along the way we learn a lot about Dave’s peculiar fondness for the song Goodbye Mary Lou from the Statler Brothers. (Mary Lou was the name of the first girl who knew better than to date him) From there we dive right into the history of music creation and the theft of music by the wealthy long before us peons ever dreamed of downloading I Want It That Way from Napster. (We love that song, but we refuse to PAY for it!) From there we learn how early music pirates swashed their buckles with sheet music and how suddenly, when corporate money became involved, that sort of thing became illegal. Then we learn how Congress finally got around to considering music worthy of copyright protection in 1909. (Again, see the part where corporate money became involved.) Finally we find out how your mixtapes scare the shit out of the record companies until Compact Discs came along and made you buy the White Album. (Again) Our Sponsor this week is Dieter the Music Man’s Sheet Music Emporium, just the hits, not of the shit. We open with Dread Pirate Roberts and close with Woody Guthrie singing about a really great night of oral sex, we think.
