   Hi all,

     Posting  to this list  puts me in the class of being "Out Of My  
League."   I'm one of those 68  years old guys that hears a classical  
work  and wonders if my kids will ever hear  and enjoy the many   
compositions I enjoy and own. Many  times I hear a composition and  
forget the name of  what I'm listening to; I can follow  every note  
in my mind  but that is no consolation.

   The following will be bullet thoughts aimed at the original  
posting. Reply if you wish.

     1952,  I lived next to the sister's convent at St. Augustine's  
Catholic  church in Milwaukee, I was in 4'th grade. Sister Mary  
Sarita told my mom  that the school needed a clarinet player in the  
grade  school orchestra. The music lessons would cost $1 a week--  
case closed as nobody crossed a SSND , check out the Blues Brothers  
Movie.

   I learned  not only to play a clarinet but to enjoy music. Most of  
my friends  were in the band or orchestra and it  was fun.

   While in high school,  I  kept up my interest in music  by  
recording  local bands on  my Ampex.   Kids  interested in music   
were abound and willing to let  anyone record them that wanted to.  A  
good friend of mine who I addicted to audio followed his dream . He  
ended up buying RCA's  Chicago studio  and now has a mastering studio  
in Nashville.

   Flash forward. How  many kids play an instrument  in a high school  
band  or orchestra nowadays?-- that doesn't run on 110 vac?

   I'm beginning to appreciate music  that isn't on a master tape or  
LP  but contains the musical genius that I feel is not in todays  
musical generation. I regret  that I don't have the time or  
opportunity  to find or listen to it.

     FWIW, I visit my family in Milwaukee  a few times each year.  
Downtown Books is listed in the phone book but not under Vinyl. They  
buy book collections from the kids of the blue bloods  that die off  
in the midwest.  The vinyl collections go along for the ride as  
their  kids are in the digital age. The first time I visited them and  
walked into the vinyl room and felt as if I was a  wolf  that just  
caught his lunch and looked around to see if another wolf  was  
looking to steal it; visit  them if you can. Each time I visit  
Milwaukee I  send a crate that holds 880 LPs  to the Fed Ex terminal.  
I rent a PT Cruiser  that holds the crate perfectly. Their  selection  
is fantastic.

   To sum it up; The Government copyright laws are doing  what  
society is doing  just as efficiently. Play an Ipod and not an  
instrument. If you do  choose to play an instrument it  better run on  
110 VAC.
   What type of responses would the original posting get in another  
ten years?

   Here I sit with great analog recording gear and skill, admittedly  
in the learning  stage, and nobody to record. I remember George  
Goeble who said, "I feel like a tuxedo  with a pair of brown shoes"

   Gldnears made a recording a few days ago. I sure  would like to  
hear it  If he or I wouldn't  violate the copyright laws.

  Time  to sign off  as Sue has supper ready.  Ken
