Extremely Rare & Forgotten Music/MultiCultural Blogger
What I’m Listening to?
I would imagine that absolutely no one from this generation would know anything about The Carpenters.  The Carpenter's music appeals to a specific type of audience, that I think hardly exists anymore. To be honest, I'm not sure what genre they even belong to; they weren't really country, and they weren't really folk artists either; yet quite a few of their music comes very close to sounding like elevator music. I guess the best category for them would be "easy listening?" Their music is extremely mellow. In fact, some of their music is so mellow that I wouldn't recommend listening to it if your mood is down. However, I think it's the perfect music to listen to whilst reading a magazine, or just chillin. Actually, a lot of their music would make great "cool down" choices (after an exercise).  My favorites are, "(They Long To Be) Close To You," "We've Only Just Begun," "Rainy Days And Mondays," "Superstar," which was again redone by Luther Vandross, and "Yesterday Once More."

Karen Carpenter died of cancer on February 1983. She had a very unique and distinct voice and music. There was no one else like them. Her brother, Richard Carpenter had made a couple of albums since Karen's death; however, they have not done well. I guess the public was to used to hearing Karen's distinct voice.

Salutations Vintage Family,

VintageNewscast is simply a way for me to share all my personal nostalgic memories of extremely rare and forgotten about music with “like minded” visitors.  My blog is exclusively dedicated to all things 1989-ish and older. My taste in music is very eclectic and diverse. I also have a bi-weekly videocast on iTunes, and Youtube channel, were I will offer random topics, and interesting historical news found on the net.

I’ve noticed that ever since online radio, and the music streaming movement, I’ve found it difficult to find or rediscover old music that I grew up with. The generation of technology has made it very difficult; unless you remember many of the albums i’ve talked about on my blog, you will not easily find/discover them on internet radio. My goal is to help visitors discover and or RE-discover rare and historical classic music of many genres, to add to one’s personal playlist. I am one of the very few multicultural bloggers of color, to own one of the most (yet still few as a whole) diverse classic music blogs within cybersphere.

I recommend that you bookmark my site and visit at least once every week. I frequently update and add new articles to my blog. Also, subscribe to my iTunes or Youtube channel to get both historical news and or thoughts on events of recent past. Tell your friends about VintageNewscast.com, your new home for classic memories and new classic discoveries!

Enjoy!
