Hello Hattie
I like the music we had in the fifties and sixties, when the music world changed. Some good music since then but a bit more selective.
Good stuff to loosen up the joints.
Went to a few dance classes but felt awkward when the teacher kept telling me to push my bottom in and make full contact
with the girl.
With Rock and Roll plus Jive just did what we wanted to and enjoyed it all.
We are very lucky to have been young people moving into that age from old style music. I well remember the Wind Up gramophone we had
with a picture of a dog on it.
Come on lets get Moovin and a Groovin again.. If only the bone joints would allow.
Shall we go Down Town.
Rock On

Hello Hattie, I have a wide taste in music. Heavy Rock, Punk, 60's and 70's music to a bit of classical. I think were so lucking to have the internet. I can listen to all types of music by just searching for it. Gone are the days when I would think back about a song, but never hear it.

The other night sitting listening to music on the ipad, I went from Barry White (The trouble with me), Abba (Dancing queen), Golden Earing (Radar love) Social Distortion (Nickles and Dimes) to Widor (Toccata) and a few others. I prefer Music to telly, and enjoy radio. I tend to listen to LBC speech radio mainly with a bit of Radio 4 and Radio 2

Hello Hattie,

Just like GG I still like to listen to the Rock n Roll of the late 1950s and the 1960s. The Everley Brothers, Fleetwood Mac and Duane Eddy were favourites and still are.
Much to my wife's disgust, I have always had a soft spot for Modern Jazz and Country Blues.

Internet has certainly been instrumental (if you will pardon the pun) in discovering all sorts of music that perhaps I wouldn't normally listen to. I recently found Alison Balsom, a beautiful classical trumpet player

I inherited a love of lighter classical music from my dad and go to as many concerts as I can afford. It usually means a drive to London.

Never played in a group, but sung in a choir (The London Hospitals Choir).

When I was about 15 I wanted to be in a Rock Band. i dreamt of gong to London and being on the Rock Scene. I bought my first guitar from a man with a junk shop near yardley cemetery. The shop was just down Stockfield Rd, on the left going towards the Speedwell. I bought a new Acoustic guitar for 17 and that included the vinyl case. I never really got a tune out of it and as time went on I got quite proficient with the 'Air Guitar'. Anyway, London clearly wasn't ready for someone like me  Grin so I got a job in a garage as an apprentice mechanic, and did another sort of tuning......

I was in a choir too, I find singing really joyful.
 I had an echo for Christmas and can listen to thousands upon thousands of different songs/music the only trouble is I don't always know the title or the artist so end up looking it up on the iPad 😂

When I was in junior school I remember playing a witch in Hansel and Gretel. I remember opening a pretend door for someone and that was the end of my acting (career)
