Yeah, I've found that giving badges away with CDs really does work - a 'free gift' seems to make people happy regardless of the fact that it's only worth 20p. We have sold a fair few, though -...

This does vary depending on the location - 8x10 tend to have wheels, 4x10s don't usually - so if you need to move it some distance on foot, an 8x10 can occasionally be the easier option....

No, he said that he can't afford to support all the artists he wants to. That's not 'I don't buy music'. It's 'I buy the music I can, and download some that I can't afford'. Biiiiiiig difference.
