Many of us will be familiar with the glory days of taping the charts off the radio. They said that home taping was killing music but Dire Straits’ Brothers In Arms still sold shedloads on CD. If you’ve seen the Official Chart Company’s music charts in the last month, Ed Sheeran occupied most of the Top Twenty places one week. (We shall leave you to decide whether or not a Lego house has excellent thermal properties). The audio tape was the Spotify of its day and inspired many a mixtape. What if heating engineers had a playlist?
