What You’ll Find Here ...
How about a little music? Your webmaster is a YouTube junkie, and has a penchant for looking up obscure stuff
from years back. This site contains some interesting things you might never have heard, or at least not recently:
This is by no means an exhaustive list of all my favorite groups and singers. I'll add
more as time permits. My tastes are eclectic, and about the only things you won't
hear are big bands, heavy metal, rap, or opera, and it’s mostly from the mid fifties to
the mid 70s. There’s lots of classic rock and old country stuff, and I'll probably
eventually create a dedicated sections for one-hit wonders and novelty songs. The
Tom Lehrer stuff opens the door to parody and satire, so you can expect we'll include
such artists as Homer & Jethro, the Smothers Brothers, and Weird Al Yankovic.
Most, if not all, of the links will be to YouTube. Because of copyright issues, sometimes things are removed by
the authors, or by YouTube. I can’t guarantee that every link will work, but if something gives you a dead end, just
go to YouTube and enter the song you’d like to hear, but chances are you’ll find lots of links to that song, both by
the artist you’re looking for and by others. I’ll update obsolete links as I find ‘em.
Who Is This, Anyway?
Doesn’t matter who I am. I’m just an old guy who likes a lot of music. And a lot of other stuff, too. I’ve got
websites for other interests, and some planned that aren’t yet in the development stage. To go along with this
lengthy (and growing) collection of music links, I’m going to give you a list of four stories/books that really
resonate with me. All are short, some may be familiar, and all are worth the time. The first two are sometimes
thought of as kid’s stories ... but have deeper meaning for adults. The third is written like a kids’ book. It isn’t.
The fourth one may seem like fiction to those who’ve never had the pleasure of working for, or with, a real leader.
Horton Hatches the Egg -- Dr Seuss about integrity, specifically in keeping your word
The Emperor’s New Clothes -- Hans Christian Andersen recognizing BS, speaking truth to power
The Little Prince -- Antoine de St Exupery observing with “fresh eyes” and asking lots of questions
Leadership is an Art -- Max De Pree definitive book on leadership; how to do it, how to recognize it
All are easy reads in a single sitting. They embody wisdom and common sense, and each will make you smile.
