First up, I should explain that I am seventy later this year. As such, this may serve to explain some of my musical choices.
I always say that I have a catholic taste in music, liking a wide range of genres. I was brought up in household where the radio was often on. Even at bedtime, my sister and I were allowed to listen to Radio Luxembourg by our Mother. Saturday mornings were always ‘Children’s Favourites’ with Uncle Mac. Further, when Rock n Roll began to have an impact, we were allowed to watch ’ 6:5 Special’ and ‘Oh Boy’ on TV. Layered into this was School where, we were introduced to classical music.
So, everything from Punk Rock/Heavy Metal to Classical Music or, the other way round if you prefer. Interspersed into that will be many other musical forms, Jazz, Opera, Big Bands, Folk and Acoustic, Blues and any other genre you choose to name.
At present, there are three streams to my listening: In terms of Classical Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man’ is getting a lot of full length plays, I’m also into Rag n Bone
Man with his tremendous baritone delivering tracks leaning towards Blues and Soul. Finally, my iPod is set on my Folk and Acoustic playlist. When this changes, who can say!
