My how time flies!

Dear Friends:

Listening to the radio while driving around this morning I heard one of my favourite songs by John Lennon from his last album. (Woman - Double Fantasy - This Album was supposed to be the start of a fantastic comeback for John Lennon, but Mark David Chapman fucked that up pretty good!)

Thinking about the fact that it came out in 1980 I was shocked when I realized this was 36 years ago last month. (It came out in December 1980)

In spite of changing musical styles and tastes, I have to say that since the introduction of what we call "Rock and Roll," the pop charts have remained fairly consistent in attracting a certain audience for over sixty years now!

Hopefully this trend will continue for quite some time as I don't want to give up the songs I grew up with!!
