Welcome to Music Central

 
 

Music is my #1 hobby.  I have loved music as far back as I can remember.  How far back is that?  I remember dancing in my bedroom to my parents’ 45 rpm records when I was three or four years old.  I got own my first 45 rpm singles when I was 4 years old.  The two records were by The Beatles -- one was “I Want To Hold Your Hand” b/w “I Saw Her Standing There,” and the other was “Can’t Buy Me Love” b/w “You Can’t Do That.”  I asked my parents how I had those records, since I knew they had no interest in such music.  They said I begged them intensely--I just had to have them.  So I started young.


But my real beginning into the realm of music listening began when I was in the fourth grade. I said to my father one day, “That would be neat if you could buy the songs you hear on the radio.”  He replied, “You can.”  And that opened up a whole new world that has been a wonderland to me ever since.


Here at Music Central, you can read all about my musical interests.  Perhaps you can learn about styles of music you were not aware of.  I hope that you will learn about new musicians that you had not heard of, but through my reading become interested in.


Go to the Music Central page to find all the stuff that I’ve written about music.
