My kids went to a graduation party tonight, and when I picked them up the host parents and some other parents were going through some 70’s songs, the stuff we grew up on. The 60’s and 70’s top 40 stuff always takes me back to a simpler time. A lot of good stuff came out back then. Nowadays, I have no idea who anybody is on the radio. Are we old or does music just suck now? Or is it because the music business is totally different now?

The stuff on the radio really is garbage. A couple of companies own all the radio stations and the playlists are set by corporate. Spotify has been great for me to discover new music. Each week they give me a recommended playlist based on what's I have liked and a release radar whenever a band I've liked releases something new.

It takes time to build a library but it's worth it when you can add to it every month with new music.

All three.
We are old, “mainstream”!music blows donkey balls, and the industry creates their own “stars”...more than ever before.

Want evidence?
This is the so called artist of the year “rapping” about her smegma encrusted hatchet wound while performing what’s supposed to be simulated lesbian dope sex but looks like two hogs rutting...onstage...at the Grammy awards...on nAtional TV ...while the Hollywood pedophilia machine cheers.
Do you even have to ask the question?

A guy who used to be a broadcast engineer started a low power FM station here in 2017. Was continuous commercial free with tons of old stuff. Now getting the programming bug, so losing the commercial free vibe a bit. Still, like KROQ started commercial free and then went mainstream, this is a pretty good connection for 'older people' music. BEST OF ALL...You can listen online at Khug.rocks

yeah...I have only a few miles distance and since the house is not in unobstructed path to the antenna (two hills, 200' higher than mine), I cannot pick it up. but, 'the interwebs of love' are there for us.

Not a big Aerosmith fan but really like this song. The sound and the lyrics are good on this one.

For the most part new music sucks. If there is any talent, satellite radio is where you'll hear it.

I agree about finding new stuff. Pandora has a “Discover” feature that will play unknown bands similar to the station you have it on.

Agreed, the whole album.....saw them @ the Hollywood Palladium on this tour. Funny, wouldn't expect it, but one of the craziest pits I've ever been in. That show kicked ass. 👍
We saw Sebastian Bach when he played Jeezus in Jesus Christ Superstar by Andrew Lloyd Weber at the La Mirada Theater. He played a great Jesus, but was fired shortly thereafter. Guess he was a little too much for the theater crowd, lol.

…CSN’s first album…
…Funny story…old friend of mine Piano Peggy S was given an acetate of this album quite a bit before it’s release and her gig was writing the chart… in other words with her perfect pitch she knew and could write down every note from the album..,Well Peggy is a whole book by herself… anyway I don’t know who’s idea it was but the acetate ended up in the basement of a church in Pasadena where the radio station KPPC broadcast from …they played the album on the air…When the record company got word that this had happened you to think a bomb went off ..,dear Ms. Peggy’s life was unduly threatened…
… luckily everything turned out OK…

So my budget "rebuild" is coming along nicely.

A couple of weeks back I picked up a set of Event 20/20 passive monitors in mint shape for $80. I bought them from the original owner who paid $350 per speaker from Roger Sound Labs in 2001. They have 7.5" woofers and handle a stout 200W per speaker, and they fit on a bookshelf!

I'm driving them with my vintage Onkyo M-5150 amp I bought when I was 18/19 (I'm 55 now). This amp puts out a solid 150W/channel. I have two other Onkyo AV amps rated at 140W, and they don't even come close to the old timer.

Soon I will hook up my 25-year old Bose 201 bookshelf speakers. Same deal, I never thought much of the speakers when they were driven by the AV amp, but damn, the vintage Onkyo pumped some life into them and they respond well.

Love the sound. Has that raw garage band sound like Diamond Head. Unfortunately the lyrics tell a sad story.

…Started reading Robbie Robertson’s biography a few days ago and he explains things so well that I dug out the Bands first album “music from the big pink”and gave it a spin…

… pretty sure we smoked a joint and I honestly didn’t get the first album… two or three songs on it I did get… but historically this album became a major influence in music…
