It was mostly for my son. I got a nice free Diamond Rio 600 music player somewhere around 1999-2000. The company used our software to design it, so we gave them out at a booth during one of the industry shows. I think it held like 64Mb. I gave it to my son and he wanted to fill it. I think I was getting crappy 32 or 62Kbit songs on Limewire.I was, too.
But being a radio guy, I was constantly pissed off at how poorly people tagged their songs.
