@andy My sister got into running recently, so for her birthday I made her an mp3 mix of songs with "run" in the title.
When I got to Tom Petty's "Running Down a Dream" I was surprised to hear the track end with: "Hello CD listeners. We've come to the point in this album where those listening on cassette or record will have to stand up or sit down and turn over the record or tape. In fairness to those listeners we will now take a few seconds before we begin side two."
@smurph incredible media artifact, wow! did they get Tom himself to record the statement? would be fascinated to learn what internal format war reasoning went into that decision.
@andy It sure sounded like Tom Petty himself doing the announcement. Felt pretty tongue in cheek. Also interesting that the bit was still there in the version of the song available on the iTunes store.
