  •  I suppose mine also came from my dad. (5+ / 0-)

    An avid jazz hound (trad mostly), he spent his childhood scouting pop bottles so he could get a new 78 every week. Satchmo, Beiderbecke, Whiteman.

    But what he had was ears. When the Beatles came out, he could hear what was different. I remember when Rubber Soul came out. He brought home the record and literally dragged my brother and me over to the hifi saying, "You have to hear this. They're breaking all the rules of what you're supposed to do musically and it sounds good!"

    That love and excitement is all I really have of him, yet it is a legacy which has shaped my whole life, personally and professionally.

    Republicans represent both sides: the insanely rich and vice versa.
