  1. Re: Is Rock & Roll Dead, Just no one called the time?

    From my perspective, I began listening to popular music (music that was not classical or jazz) in the '50's. So Perry Como, Eddie Fisher, Andy Williams, Patti Page, the Kingston Trio, and orchestras...

  9. Re: Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire: What are the best Amp and speaker combinations you've ever heard?

    Very impressed by the combination of Rockport Lyra and Doshi Amps (better than Magico Q7 and Constellation to my ears).

    Re: 50 Amazing Vintage Photos From the 1970s

    Dan, thanks for the link. Brought back some nice memories. Mick Jagger is only 3 years older than I am, so I hit 30 in 1975 - old enough that the events and pictures were very real to me.
