I don’t know when I started listening to old music.
My parents never really played their own music in the house that I remember. Just the crappy AM (only!) radio station that I despised, especially when they played the Irish music on Sunday mornings when I took a bath (it was located in the bathroom of all places). I didn’t even know there was an FM notch on the radio until I was in middle school. I remember when we were sitting in music class and overheard the other girls talk about New Kids On The Block. I literally thought that there were new kids on the block and going to attend our school. Lame! I didn’t let on that I didn’t have a clue what they were talking about either.
What brought this post on, was I was listening to the radio at work and one of my favorite songs by Louis Armstrong came on; What a Wonderful World. I remember when Napster was available in the 90’s and I downloaded a lot of music, my play list was so so diverse from Foo Fighters, Jack Johnson, Queens of The Stone Age, to Ella Fitzgerald and Billy Holiday. I disliked putting my music on random because like I said, it was such a different genre of music playing and just doesn’t go together. I always sorted my music out into play lists.
I should get back all my old music. I use three computers (one at work, a desktop at home plus a laptop) and also an external hard drive. I think the simplest thing to do would be put it all onthe external hard drive and listen to it all from there.
