Baby Boomers Music

Baby Boomers are egotistical asses, especially when it comes to music!   I should know.  I'm a Baby Boomer.   You have to remember, most Baby Boomers have followed music from its early days.  Say, a Baby Boomer, born in 1954, will remember songs from the Everly Brothers, Elvis Presley, The Big Bopper, and Buddy...

Blood Sweat and Tears

How will you be remembered? Will you be the guy who fought for a cause? Or will you be a guy who had an amazing idea for a band, a band that would turn into a pop sensation?! What if you don't want your band to be a pop sensation? You dig your heals in the... Continue Reading →

A New Wave Dance Playlist

  For me, Dance Music is New Wave 80's music. Because that's when I was disturbed and dancing. I did some dancing in the late 90's, but that's when Dance music was just plain old disturbing to me. Here are some notables: Ministry with Everyday is Halloween - By the way, this song was our... Continue Reading →

I Wanted My Own Bitchin’ Camero

    It's the mid 1980s. Bands like REO Speedwagon, Foreigner and Wham! ruled the charts. But there's an underground movement bubbling up -- punk rock. Listening to my Sony Walkman late at night, the local college station would spin strange songs and bizarre artists. Sometimes, the songs were so awful my ears hurt. Other... Continue Reading →

Indie Artist William Steffey

Although we may be highly influenced by the music that came along before the digital age, the beauty of technology is how it has opened doors for Indie artists to record, produce and distribute their music without the 100s of thousands usually put up by a record company and promoters. William Steffey is one of... Continue Reading →

Music Transports Me

  The other day, I woke up disoriented to the sound of my husband’s clock radio alarm going off. In the split second it took me to process my surroundings and realize that it wasn’t the middle of the night and my toddler hadn’t woken me up coughing again, I became aware of the song....

The Magical Mystery of Music

If there was no such thing as the magical mystery that is music, I wonder what humans would do to pass the time? If I couldn't hum to myself or learn to produce tonal incantations from odd and diverse objects, then how would I express myself beyond the fragmentary thoughts that bind my mind and...

Thanks For That Magic Yellow Box

Thanks for That Little Yellow Box While children and teenagers across the land were secretly reading books by flashlight under the covers, I was covertly listening to the radio. My parents were none the wiser, thanks to a plastic yellow box -- the Sony Sports Walkman. With the Walkman came the ability to listen without... Continue Reading →

New Releases by Classic Artists

Cher has just released yet another album. No, the plastic surgery hasn't hurt her singing voice. Still, the constant beat that accompanies her voice, one that we hear on 90% of the Pop tunes put out by idiotic record producers of today, tends to be annoying after a couple of songs.  I wish it was...

FirstNotes and ForeverMusic

I was raised in a pretty shut-down household, where the music available was a strict diet of Classic FM (which I now love), Classical CDs (I love some of them), ‘Churchy’ music (still not that keen), and Gilbert and Sullivan (hate it with a passion). There was one exception (other than the stalwart ‘sung Times... Continue Reading →
