Replaced Batteries in my PULSE CD

Today I was listening to PULSE from Pink Floyd and was looking for my CD box. The CD box has a red blinking LED. I remember seeing the CD at the store and I knew I had to have it. PULSE is one of my favorite Pink Floyd albums and I want to purchase the vinyl version for my collection.

I replaced the two original AA batteries in the box and I was shocked it still work. The battery box would not slide out easy because the batteries swelled. The crud on the battery terminals was bad. Now I have a blinking PULSE CD box and enjoying the album on my HomePod.

Dark Side of the Moon on Vinyl

I’m on vacation this week. After a hard morning of digging out old shrubbery, I took a trip to the mall. At one of the store I found the Dark Side of the Moon album on 180 gram vinyl. Yes, I purchased it right away. Thought about it while in the checkout line, and choose to make the purchase

I was first introduced to this album back in the early 80’s when my parents purchased a stereo for my brother and I. My uncles purchased to cassettes for me; Night Moves by Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band and Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd. I enjoyed both albums. I wore out the cassette of Dark Side of the Moon and replaced it with a CD. I replaced the CD when it broke and the other CD was stolen.

Although I have another CD and the digital media of this album, I finally own a vinyl LP. The album is 180 gram heavyweight vinyl, comes with two posters and two stickers.

Yes, I’m playing the album as I write this and it is great.
