Music has always been a dominating force in my life. I was strongly influenced by Classical and Folk as a child. I will never forget the story of Peter & the Wolf, which taught me about instruments of classical music. As a teen in the '60's I liked Groups like Iron Butterfly, Chambers Brothers, The Band, Jefferson Airplane and Led Zeppelin. I tend to hear music I like, then when it gets played on commercial radio I get bored with it fast... I got hooked on a station in Pasadena, CA listed as KROQ it thumbed its nose at what it called "Dinosaur Stations" like KLOS and at that time KMET, (now KTWV) I left California for a few years, and to my regret; KROQ has become a Dinosaur station. I then heard a station on PBS called Musical Starstreams from Santa Fe, NM it played once a week on Sunday night I was captured... then I moved to AZ in Flagstaff I heard a show called Hearts of Space from San Francisco. When in Phoenix, AZ I would hear sounds at 1am on Sat night, all electronic, I now find the music I love here in the land of cyber... Techno, Trance Electronica, I never hear it played on commercial radio, I wonder why? I found the sounds on iTunes first... but they required a fee after hearing so much for free, NOW, I found Pandora, Thanks to Stumble Upon! I am hooked!
