Ruby Griffen and the age of CDs

From Standing Room Only, 2:51 pm on 8 April 2018

What's your favourite memory or story about buying or listening to CDs when they first came out? Elam Art School student Ruby Griffin, who's in her 20s, can just about remember the tail end of the Compact Disc era before digital took over. Now she's creating an encyclopedia of CD memories as one of her big projects of the year, and she'd love your help. Ruby is the daughter of top scriptwriters, James Griffin of 800 words fame who's been helping to gather stories about CDs. His own - predictably - is a humdinger... but first Lynn Freeman talks to Ruby about her first CD memories.
