I heard a statistic that 2 percent of the music produced gets 98 percent of the air time. I think there's strength in diversity. I have to watch out for my own attitudes so I don't come across as a snob. I don't advertise that I listen to Barry or Abba. My 24 yr old son raised both eyebrows when I admitted to listening to 'Dancing Queen', as if he had to reformulate his image of his old man. But I have to be careful not to look at people as an anthropological anomaly because their taste is on the other side of the bell curve from mine.
Ron, only your friends will never let you forget the embarrassing moments.
