Mark Roffe Embarrasing RICK FIELDING-Radio Show Reminder (70* d) RE: Embarrasing RICK FIELDING-Radio Show Reminder 25 May 99


"Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans..." and I finally got to the computer at 2 minutes past Rick's show. I did, however get to hear some of the next show, "Mods and Rockers." I listen to some of that kind of stuff to keep me more in touch with what kids are thinking, and to (try) to stop me from getting too stogey, but... It's interesting how folk music is for all ages of people to enjoy, but some music seems to have a partial adjenda to exclude the parents. Like it's OUR music, not yours, and we'll make it as hard to listen to as it takes to make you back off from it. I've thought about this for a few years, how in the old days a whole family would listen to and dance to the (live) music together, and as time went on, the kids got their OWN music. Coming to a head with fifties rock 'n roll, and then on to acid rock, and further still to punk. Funny thing is, even though I'm not kid-aged anymore, I find that I can enjoy rap and whatever that angry atonal monotonal stuff was that followed Rick's show. Enough scope creep -- I'll catch his show next week, and I'll bet my kids'll enjoy it too!!
