Music and Me
The last time I really paid much attention to music I was in my twenties-first listening to rock and then trying to understand classical music or jazz. I did not grow up in a family where classical music had any place. My father liked music and listened to soft jazz on the radio-probably not jazz at all really. My mother, like me, only used music to dance to. She was also a news person.
My brother was a huge rock fan until he hit his thirties and then it fell away with him.
Phil listens to music more than me, but mostly classical in the car. Or occasionally jazz in late afternoon. Neither of us work to music anymore.
So my history with music is pretty pathetic.
How about you? How much time do you spend listening to music? And what kind?
