Many good times were had at the Winnipeg Folk Festival too. Taj Mahal, Ian and Sylvia and the Great Speckled Bird, so many others. Oh, the memories!
Let's not forget some of the seminal bands that paved the way for the metal bands, such as Uriah Heep, Blood Rock, and others. Who can leave jethro Tull out of this mix, not me.

When my daughter took me to see "In The Mood last week, I was quietly singing very softly all the words to all the songs that had words. And I would tell my daughter what band made the recording and who the singer(s) were. She was absolutely surprised that I knew so much about the Big Band era.

I enjoy Benny Goodman, and had a grandfather, who was full blooded Doiche who played clarinet in a Big Band, though I don't know which one it was. It was a wlll known band in its day though. I don know that. I also like Deano, and Gene Kelley, and In my mind, the greatest crooner of them all, Bing Crosby. Didn't much care for Frank Sinatra though. He was too arrogant.

My mom, who grew up with Sinatra, hated his music. She was a huge Elvis fan though. She also loved all the Gilbert and Sullivan music.

Gilbert and Sullivan works were always a favorite of mine. When I was in the ninth grade, I played the part of Rafe. The one who knew about the switching of the babies. I memorized the whole musical. And in the fourth grade I was Gretel in Humperdink's Hansel and Gretel. I memorized that whole play also. There was a part when Gretel was off stage. I had the dubious job of prompting. Then back on stage.

Addie, what is the name of the G&S productions? They aren't called musicals, they're called something else, and the name escapes me.

Today's kids are always surprised that our generation had music in our lives also. And we can recite who sang what and when it was popular. We know where we were the first time we heard the song.

Hey kids, guess what. We no longer have to use our drums for just sending messages. We were able to figure out how to take a hollow piece of wood and make music to go with the drums.
