Some day, I'll have this conversation with a kid:

Me: So a long time ago, we used to play our music by putting this thing the size of a small phone into a big machine.

Me: Then, we'd press play, and if the song we wanted to hear wasn't playing, we'd have to press fast forward or rewind to try and find the beginning of the song we wanted to hear.

Me: You had no way of knowing how far back or forward you had to go, so sometimes you'd end up going too far ahead and have to rewind again.

Me: Finally, you'd find the beginning of the song, back up a bit and press play. That whole process might take several minutes. Per song.

Child: [blink]
