Look at a file handler like an old style magnetic tape. You just have
recorded your favorite song from radio onto a tape. What do you have to
do in order to listen to the song again? Press play? No, you have to
rewind first.

The MP3 generation will never understand the hard work of a mix tape
created recorded from radio broadcasts. ;)
