June 12, 2000: Line up for the Hip's new CD at Media Play

If you showed up at Media Play at midnight to buy “Music @ Work” from the Tragically Hip, that was 15 years ago today.

With a nod at what was to come in music over the ensuing years, Media Play also offered a “personal download passcode” to gain “exclusive tracks on the web.”

Assuming a basic 28.8 kbps dial-up internet service, you could expect each song to take up to a half-hour to download (so long as no one had to use the phone).
