Wayne Carr on the radio

Superstar DJ Pete Tong says there are 18-year-olds who have never seen vinyl. Pete says digital technology is now so dominant records are completely extinct in some young people's lives.

"I played a seven-inch vinyl set recently and discovered there are 18-year-olds who have never seen vinyl," he says in an interview in this month's Wired magazine.

Of course Pete, there is another interpretation of that statement... The people who come out to hear you play are complete fucking morons.

It may take a more intellectual disc jockey to get to the bottom of this cultural question - Jo Whiley, get your scary big terrahawk face up in here we need your incisive questioning now more than ever.

My vinyl is in the loft (warping) and the kids have no idea what it is!

But 18?

Shit.. man... scary!
Getting old!

I can't help feeling there's a difference between not owning any vinyl and not being able to recognise the stuff.

I can see Jamie Oliver in front of a classroom full of children brandishing a 12inch of Blue Monday, exasperated that they think it's a clock.
