The great thing is not to patronise or generalise Most people born in the 1930s would be mid 70s to mid 80s Would have been in their 20s and 30s when rock - took off in the 50s and 60s May have spent their life listening to classical music or swing or jazz or gone to folk clubs
may be an ex performer

Find out what people like - having communication with people is fine. When I did the homes I would find out if there were any birthdays or anniversaries and sing a song to them personally and would talk to them about the music Also put in a few racy gags. I did this at one place and a very old gent got up and told evern ruder material to great applause. We spent a nice hour swapping dirty gags
