Until very recently the country’s incarcerated were living in a world of Walkmans, radios and cassette tapes. But finally, things are changing. SPIN goes behind bars to investigate how music makes its way inside prisons, who puts it there and what it means to inmates.

Great article, My husband is a musician in prison. He plays everyday. They have even formed a band. Recently the band played for a visiting string quartet, from the Seattle Symphony. You should write an article about the original music coming out of prisons today. I wish I could hear whats playing ……………….Thanks
