I have the MMF-7. It's true that there is a break in period for the cartridge, and you'll notice an improvement supposedly after about 40 or 50 hours (!) of play time. (or is it just the power of suggestion.....?) I did not have the problem you had, fortunately, but when I received the unit it turne...

The quote above says they do the song "Imagine". Was this in the previously booted outtakes (30 Days or Day by Day)?

I'm no Bush-lover, but this seems to be nit-picking based on his habitually sloppy speaking style. He said "I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower -- the TV was obviously on. And I used to fly, myself, and I said, well, there's one terrible pilot.
