Happy New Year

The local public radio station, MPBN was playing classical music by artists that died in 2010 this morning. I so enjoy creative programming ideas and take a break from playing tracks for those rare stations/programs that feature such a true love for recorded music. Amongst them is Highway 61, all Dylan hour on WERU (streams live Fridays) and KCSM jazz station from the Bay Area and of course WOZ, New Orleans.

It got me to thinking that in the dawn of time of humankind's journey of expression, paintings and sculpture and writings were so precious because they could survive the originator and allow subsequent generations to reach back in time and experience the perceptions of their progenitors. How the nature of inspiration must have changed. But it was not until the last century, of which I inhabited more than half, that audio recording could provide the same benefit for music. And so, even in that mere speck of preserved history, we have such an amazing body of music to experience. I wonder if that is why I, for as long as I can remember, have cherished my radio, recordings, and the extraordinary humans who have given this gift to us.

Happy New Year! I say a heartfelt so long to 2010 and don't let the door hit you on the ass as you go out. And to you who've endured it, don't forget to cherish what we have in such enduring abundance.

Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
