Good to hear from you - and I've played and do play some of NY's finest up'n coming sounds, and I more than agree with you that NY is certainly thriving musically :) - It's all that energy!

Yes - as I said , the energy's still there - and the profiteers are in fact no different to those of 30 years ago - it's just the media used these days that allows those in control of the "Profit Turntables" a much tighter reign.

Well, yes and no, imho :) I certainly don't think that all that comes out of kids is junk - but I'm referring to the difference between a maninstream audience craving for more Rod Stewart or more Bread or more Yes or Genesis or more Jeff Airplane etc . as opposed to these days just more dirge, more dark sad or, sometimes, regurgitated stuff.

I wouldn't disagree with that - and those once-removed genenerations are what some folks call "Thatcher's Children" - spawned in the new dark age of selfishness and lack of care for others.

If you like, wander thru some of the podcasts of my shows, where I try to play musical[/] music - what I call "Music Without Borders" - I don't care if it was created in 1965 or yesterday! If it's truly good, - it'll sound good - and always sound good.

All best
