Puncdoc true yet again, I travel through my fairly new digital radio and there is music for all tastes, mainly Classic FM though on occasion one of the oldies programmes and I mean 40-50-60, not on any account 70-80-90. I will admit there are now some songs I recognise as Music!!! and singers I listen to more Adele definitely not boy bands or withered twitchy rehashed pensioners still trying to gyrate as if being stung by a swarm of bees. Vive Le Difference and long may it be so.
Orchid Lady go wash your mouth out Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, mentioned on the same page as Bing "agh" I never liked Sinatra and after hearing Chick Henderson the Hartlepool crooner you would not compare them either, Bing said Chick was the best crooner of his day.
My Daughters said you never play the, piano when we are here, well no, they are usually talking twenty to the dozen, the grandchildren playing or wrapped up in their technocrat toys, Hannah has two funny looking dolls that actually talk to each other cost a fortune and do not need any one to play with them, what is the point? So I sat down and played, what I know, the grandchildren on each side open mouthed, we did not know your piano could do that, no children I am doing that, the piano is the voice of my fingers. A voice from the gods, dad can you play some three chord boy band number I had never heard of, no piano lid closed I gave up.
Music was, still is my life, dancing, going through the big band era was an education in itself dancing to those wonderful live bands in the huge Locarno;s and Palais it was our time as was probably the noughties to some of you, what ever we think of as good music is our business as long as we get enjoyment from it.
