A Listen Anytime, abbreviated LAT, was an electronic device that played assorted types of media, such as music, for personal use. Invented around the time of the Invasion of Utapau, the device was popular among those who would perform what they felt was tedious and repetitious work. One such person was Epin Lanmaw, a young farmer on Alderaan during the reign of the Galactic Empire.
Behind the scenes Edit
The Listen Anytime was created by author Wayne Lipman III for his novel Star Wars: The Alderaan Affair, part of the Alternative Star Wars Saga continuity. Lipman originally planned to call the device a “Dopi”, which is the reverse spelling of the electronic music device iPod, but he felt that it sounded too “dopey”. Another idea Lipman had before eventually settling on “Listen Anytime” was “iZune”, a combination of iPod and the Microsoft Zune.
