When:
October 1
Where:
Everywhere
First occurrence:
.?.
October 1, 1982 was the date that the first CD players
became available in stores.

The CD was said to be a revolutionary new music media
to make digitized music available to the public
on an indestructible shiney disc.
 Unfortunately the quality was downgraded so the discs
would degrade over time anyway.

But the following decades CD’s indeed became
the most popular medium for it’s ease of use
compared to vinyl records and cassettes.
Until the beginning of the 21st century
when flash memory and streaming became first choice
for storing almost any kind of data.
And worse, it became hip to play music on vinyl records again.
