​Then, I suggest that you give this podcast a listen.

It is an excellent episode from the "How I Built This"-podcast, featuring John MacFarlane telling the story of Sonos's early days.

There were parts of the story I didn't know, like the confrontation with Apple at a convention. Another was the first song ever played on a Sonos speaker.

I joined Sonos after the special edition Beastie Boys Five was released, and I only understood the importance of it once I heard the story in the podcast.

 

 

Here is the link, if you want to listen to the episode:

And now I’m curious. What was the first song that you played on your Sonos speaker?

What are your thoughts after hearing the podcast? Did it answer some of your questions about the early days of Sonos? Or did it create more questions? Let us know in the comments.
