When Radio Was King

Those of us who grew up before the Internet, VH1, and MTV remember when radio, usually AM but occasionally FM, was the place to listen to all the new music. It was where you found the songs you would look for on vinyl.

I came across this video and it brought back a lot of memories:

Now I do understand that folks have different preferences when it comes to their music, but what is represented here is what was most prevalent at the time, and, to be fair, what many of us of that particular generation recall. As in can sing along with. 🙂

I’ve said before that I have a rather eclectic taste when it comes to music. I love pretty much everything between Big Band, Swing, Pop, Rock & Roll, with a touch of opera and Broadway show tunes tossed in. Yeah, I even enjoy disco. <shrug> What can I say? LOL!

Everyone has those songs that live in their memories for a variety of reasons and when those songs are played we sing along. We can’t help it.

Part of the fun of top 40 radio was that 24/7 was full of music that people loved to listen to, sing along with, share with friends. Sometimes at full volume.

Part of the magic of that music is that it still lives today.

So, if you haven’t put together your own particular playlist in a while, what’s stopping you? The music is out there, waiting to be listened to again.

And should you choose to sing along, possibly off key, no one will mind. They just might join you on the chorus.

Looking For Organizational Ideas?

Me, too!

I love to find inexpensive (i.e.: cheap) ways to help me organize my home. I try to find unusual ways to use things. Bookcases can be for more than just books, right?

I found a great resource over on YouTube: The Crafty Organizer with Norrine Burke provides lots of great ideas for finding ways to tackle (corral?) all kinds of things that need to be organized in the home, office, craft space, or whatever.

Check out her website and don’t forget to look her up on Instagram.

This recent video really gave me a lot to think about and inspired me to look around for ways I could incorporate her ideas in my home.
