I think our mutual appreciation of good music from the likes of Percy Faith and Frank Sinatra is a product of our time and the respect we forged from having it so accessible growing up.
I think we were probably taught at a young age (by our parents) how important beautiful music can be in all our lives if we take the time to stop and listen to it. We were also lucky enough to have some remarkable radio stations (for me it was WNEW and WPAT) that offered this kind of music whether we were in our bedroom, our living room, at the beach, in a department store, doctors office, or simply riding in the car.
Hell, today, you can 't even find music on talk show infested AM radio, while FM is filled with "music" stations that seem to cater exclusively to the rap, hip-hop, and dance music crowds as the so-called adult lite stations all seem to share the same monotonous top 50 playlist of songs - especially during the holidays. But you are right...being the age we are has indeed provided us with priceless memories of some truly great music, hasn't it? Thanks...You helped my make turning 50 in January not seem so bad!
