The Time Machine Exist!

We call it music, ever noticed how vividly music triggers memory?

The music start and instantly we remember who we were with, where we were, what we were doing. And a whole range of emotions to back them up.

Now that is time traveling!

I recieve email frequently thanking me for playing a certain song, others requests song and the reasons are as varied as the music itself.

"Reminds me of my carefree days"

"That's the song that played at our wedding"

"It was a favorite of a buddy of mine who died last year"

Birthday, anniversary, retirement etc

A beautiful thing this time machine, that can instantly changed our mood! Pleasure, comfort, joy, sadness, so many moods! So much music!

We have come to take it for granted, haven't we? It has become a noise in the background to drown out the noises of life!

But music is always there, you open the radio!

If your local station don't play the tunes you want, the internet provides access to thousands of stations playing everything from classicals to heavy metal!!!

Being an amateur music historian, I love music!

Recently I did a show on the history of drums a 6,000 year history in a little over 4 hours. For many of the listeners it was a revelation.

That was followed by a history of the electric guitar 4 hour and 23 minutes of the best guitar players since its invention.

I am forever creating music special that are informative fun and entertaining.

Time travel is available just open your ears wide to the possibilities!
