I was going through my library of music books when I stumbled on something called NetMusic. This is almost adorably quaint.
NetMusic was published in late 1995 and was considered super-cutting-edge for its day. It featured more than 400 pages of addresses for online music sites: websites, newsgroups, chat lines, and more, all laid out in an easy-to-read style for the Internet novice. There was even an online version of NetMusic, but you had to have the latest browser (Netscape!) to access its links to concert venues and song lyrics. There was also a pretty good search engine that will help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
I looked up the URL for NetMusic but it doesn’t exist anymore. When I checked, you could buy its original domain—which was ypn.com—from GoDaddy.
Monday’s post was all about Bono’s phone calls to the White House.
