Thread Name: Folk Music Dying?
Subject: RE: Folk Music Dying?
All kids learn the music that is on radio or TV and in, general, all of their parents deplore that stuff. We listned to Shaboom, Shaboom and Rock Around the Clock and we still do sometimes.

But, we also learned about folk songs, patriotic songs, and classical music in school. If we hadn't learned about it there we would not have even known it existed.

And, that's what's happening today, at least in the U.S.
