To act in the world is the only way to understand it. In this life it is given only to God and his angels and poets to be lookers-on.

My very first job,when I was 15 years old,was working at a local radio station CKTB,in St. Catharines,Ontario.
On Sunday evenings I would operate a show called "Sweet,Swing & Jazz",hosted by Jack Dawson.It was on our less listened too sister FM station 97.7 on your dial.
Jack,was in his late sixties,back when I operated his show in the late 70's.
He & his guests every week, introduced me to this whole other style of music,which I learned to love.Here are a few that I still love today!

Artie Shaw
"Begin the Beguine"

Tommy Dorsey
"Opus One"
http://youtu.be/8N2aEmcEbyg

Duke Ellington
"Take the A Train"
http://youtu.be/cb2w2m1JmCY

These are for you Jack,where ever you are!

You guys have some Great songs!!
According to "some lists" , I'm supposedly a Baby Boomer...
I was born in 1964, the cutoff year....

I know that seems irrelevant, but this "Baby Boomer", grew up like any "Gen-X'er" - music and all... (SEE, there WAS a point!!).

My interests are as eclectic as I am! Grew up on Heavy Metal & Country - but also Crooners & Standards, Fusion & Jazz, some Carpenters, Bee Gees (pre Sat. Night Fever!), and some Hair Bands - just to be confused more!!

FAVORITES??? Very difficult, but these come to mind as favorites:

Boston - Piece of Mind
http://youtu.be/OaR2JeqxQDY

Boston - Don't Look Back
http://youtu.be/3VPLOVJ0u94

Boston - A Man I'll Never Be
http://youtu.be/Gmc_t7m2pC4

Beatles - The Long and Winding Road
http://youtu.be/Jt-YSHAr7c0

This is absolutely beautiful & you will have a tear in your eye when it's over but, not because of the music. Because it's the long
version & while poignant it didn't have the same impact as the shortened version of Taps we know. It's the audience & the story behind the
concert that will impact you. Too bad we don't honor our veterans as the Dutch do.

Here is a tribute fabulously played/paid on Veterans Day to those who fought and died for our freedom.

At the Netherlands American Cemetery
and Memorial in the village of Margraten, about six miles from Maastricht,lie buried
8,301 American soldiers killed in the battles to
liberate Holland in the fall and winter of 1944-45.

Sgt. Bill Dukeman, 101st Airborne Division, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, Second Battalion, Company C (of "Band of Brothers? fame) is buried there. He was killed in the battle of "The Crossroads" in northern Holland.

The Dutch hold an annual memorial concert every September at the above cemetery to remember and honor the Americans who died to free them in Operation Market Garden and subsequent efforts to eject the German army from Holland.

Sgt. Dukeman, like many other fallen GIs, was "adopted" by a Dutch family.
Dukeman's family in the States was contacted and hosted in Holland, and his grave site decorated each year by his Dutch "family." They keep his portrait in their home, displayed in a
place of honor.
Fathers pass this obligation down to their sons in Holland....and these brave men continue to be "honored".

This version of the original "taps" music is played by a 13 year old Dutch girl named Melissa Venema.
The conductor of the orchestra is Andre Rieu from Holland. Many of you may never have heard taps played in its entirety. The original version of Taps was called Last Post, and was
written by Daniel Butterfield in 1801.

It was rather lengthy and formal, as you will hear in this clip, so in 1862 it was shortened to 24 notes and re-named Taps.
Melissa Venema is playing it on a trumpet whereby the original was played on a bugle.

The world is mourning the loss of Nelson Mandela,the South African leader that has taught us so much about tolerance,love & respect, for each other as human beings.
And how one person can change the world for the better!

Yesterday was one of those when garage bands hit the spot. My sister gave me a collection of Australian punk, surf & rock, but I had it at work and hadn't listened to it in several years. So I give you Radio Birdman doing "Aloha Steve & Danno" from 1978:

Theme song from Ron Grainer.

The old school "Mission Impossible" theme song

Faith of the heart
Sung by Russell Watson

I've always loved Mack the Knife. In fact, Chris and I sometimes do this tune when we get together to play guitar.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEllHMWkXEU

Here's a link to Louis Armstrong performing the tune
