Nice one, Frazz. Hooray for this sort of thing I say.
If we believe in the power of the music we love, I reckon this means having the bottle to give it a go in front of people who haven't heard it before and trusting in the generations that have kept the songs for us.
As I've posted before, I've done a couple of internet radio shows for a website that does mostly jungle, drum'n'bass, & the more avant-garde corner of contemporary dance music. (Ask your kids. Heh.). And was quite moved by people's responses to what I did. Now, I'm not a great performer, so it's fairly certain that what was responded to was the songs not the singer.
