Subject: RE: Teens. The next generation...
Hey, Ely, it looks like you had better luck in recruiting than I did when I tried it, you lucky duck. I tried when I was in college (for the first two years, at least) and ended up with a dead coffeehouse and the acquaintance of a whole buncha people who (sometimes) liked the same music I did, but who all had Vastly Different tastes than mine. I also became known as Wierd Mary by all of the campus intellectuals (we called ourselves "freaks, others called us "hippies"). I wasn't buying the latest rock records, you see (I was listening to theirs), I was spending my money on Folk Legacy, Topic, etc. You may be having better results now because folk music isn't the "in" thing (my attempts were in the late 1960's). BTW, I'd love to compare your wierd campus with my alma mommy (Geneseo NY) sometime.
