Re: Young people...
I guess I caught one hell of a lucky break since my parents played jazz,
blues, country, classical--you name it, our house heard it all. So while I
certainly heard all the artists you mention above on the radio, all my LPs
were of more substantial music, sometimes to the bafflement of some of my
friends who had never heard of Fats Waller, Muddy Waters, the Yardbirds....
No, you didn't. Do you think anyone's parents were playing The Ohio
Express, the Archies, etc? Do you think that kids' parents today are
playing "dancing boy bands, pop tarts and hip hop"? We all heard all
that "adult" stuff when we were kids, but it just doesn't appeal
naturally to kids the way music that's targeted at kids does. It's a
function of age. As I said, the important thing is that there's good
music available when the kids grow to the point where they want to hear
it -- it might come from parents.
