That Was Then . . .
I was having lunch at Wolf Hole Pizza the other day. I like the music in there. My guess is they pick up one of the satelite music feeds.
I was listening to the Beatles sing "I Saw Her Standing There." It was a hit in 1964. That was 40 years ago. I thought about that -- 40 years.
Here's the interesting thing: In 1964 the radio wasn't playing hits from 1924 (40 years earlier). But with a few exceptions, we've had 40 years of pretty good music. We've had our ups and downs (there was Disco, after all), but all in all, at least as far as the music goes, it's been a good 40 years. That's why we're still listening to it.
