YES! That is the correct fix. I rely heavily on it. I know that
regardless of what I've been doing, I can press ON and resume what I
was last listening to.

One nice modification to the resume memory would be for it to save the
end of file if the list plays to completion. Maybe position the
pointer to the end of file and enter PAUSE mode when ON is pressed.
The usefulness of this would be after one goes to sleep while
listening to an audio book and it plays out, to find one's general
place again. After a good sleep and a mental reboot, sometimes I
can't remember the title I was listening to.
