An invitation listen for a special 3 hour radio program. This Friday August 1st @4 pm Central Time (US) I will be presenting “How I Met Your Music”. It will map a personal journey of music from the 1960’s to the music my children have introduced to me this year.
If you are a baby boomer with millennial kids who are all about music, you will know that there are a lot of things playing over the air today that sound quite like songs of decades ago.
Time for the 2nd Annual Alumni Radio weekend. The evening of July 30th through Sunday August 3rd, and myself and my college compatriots from late 70’s and early 80’s are coming back to take over the college radio station.
Over the past decades I have grown to like a lot of the music that my kids have introduced to me. Maybe part of it was because I spent seven years joining them at the annual sabbatical of the Van’s Warped Tour. The Warped Tour features over 7 stages lining up live music from 40 musicians and bands that are working hard to make it in the indie/punk/alternative world of music.
Or perhaps it was because there is [and was always was] music playing in our house as they grew up. They heard The Beatles, The Who and Queen and so much more as they started their lives and decided to search for their own music. As they would find their way, they would share it with me. “Hey dad listen to this one“.
So all these years later, I am going to present to my kids and anyone willing to listen ….”How I Met Your Music”.
August 1st for three hours starting with the first song I ever heard on my parents radio over the refrigerator in our kitchen and going through the decades that led up to my children creating their own music.
Does it sound like “How I Met Your Mother” the American TV show? Yeah – yup… sort of like that.
