    Music of The Sixties - More Than Just Personal Memories

    Music of The Sixties - More Than Just Personal Memories

    It is the music that enters your ears when you are a teenager that usually sticks in your mind the longest. Being a teenager during a certain decade, or just a part of it and listening to the music of the day just seems to stick with you forever. No exception here, spending a part of teenage years in the sixties, has made the music of that decade a personal favorite that simply doesn't go away.

    Finding Good Music Under The Radar - Part Three

    Social distancing, lockdown quarantine, all are words we knew were there, just didn’t have much chance to experience them directly. Now we do. But another term remains the same - new music that should not be missed. It seems that now, in these hard times is the additional chance to experience it. After all, we have more time to experience it and, of course, those piles of music we are not so familiar with have been getting bigger and bigger. Time to try and slim them down and pick some more good music that otherwise might go completely unnoticed.

    Finding Good Music Under The Radar - Part Two

    As any holiday season approaches, the piles of music to listen to grow exponentially and so do the chances of some great music just slipping by for no other reason than there is too much of it.

    Finding Quality Music Under the Radar

    These days, with streaming, downloads, and all the available formats, new and old, it is quite easy for good music to fall under the radar. In that respect, it is an almost an even field, whether music is something you seriously follow or you are just a casual fan. It often happens that your pile of vinyl or CDs just grows, or those downloads and possible streaming links are overcrowding your computer.
