What does this have to do with Oldies stations? Recently I was listening to the local Oldies station and they played one of these late 1970s “Punk” bands, based on the terms used at the time.

Watch an inspiring movie. There are lots of them out there! Remember some flick you saw ten years ago, one that left you with an uplifted feeling? Fire up the VCR or DVD player, and watch it again.

When I was then a budding investigative reporter, I have seen a murderer shed tears when he listened to an old love song. I couldn’t believe what I saw, a convicted killer crying over a song? It was only then that I fully understood that his tears were the tears of a father missing his kids. The song brought memories of his family whom he defended from a drunken neighbor who tried to harm his loved ones. It was only then that I realized that music touches not only our listening sense, but our hearts and souls as well.
Even a simple daily event, such as cooking is inspirational. Do you really think that we would enjoy the boxed goodness that is Kraft Mac and Cheese? Not to mention desert. There would be no creativity, no inspiration, to come up with new and improved ideas on what dish to design to delight a guest, or to simply delight yourself.
For us music loving people, or music junkies, digital music has opened up so many different ways for us to enjoy our music! Just imagine what the future may bring. I mean, we went from the primitive xylophones from back in the days to MP3’s in just under 200 years. The rate of progress is phenomenal. I can’t wait what the future has in store for music.
