Long before the days of iTunes and Spotify. On June 26th 1994, Aerosmith became the first ever major band to release a dowloadable song over the internet. 

The track was called 'Head First' and took a whopping 60 to 90 minutes to download!

It was downloaded by over ten thousand CompuServe customers and was available as a .wav file.

Now you can listen to .wav quality tunes directly over the internet, seamlessly every day virginradio.co.uk/live ...enjoy!
