Salutations Classic Fans,
I am a long-time blogger & now Spotify curator with one primary mission; to resurrect & preserve the memories of classic music culture in ALL GENRES. Helping my visitors to rediscover extremely rare, or physically out-of-print oldies on Spotify! A FREE & legal music streaming service. I’m talking about the kinds of hidden gems from our age group, that are NOT usually promoted anymore through (including, but not limited to), collector magazines/specialty clubs, mainstream radio stations, retail stores, or even S.A.P. (Cable TV). I’d also like to help expose my visitors to some great music they may or may not ever heard before; in hopes that I can assist in reintroducing/rebuilding our lost classic culture. You should know that my blog is geared towards the 40s and older group. However younger visitors are still always welcome of course. I also have a YouTube channel, which I’ll focus more on uploading both Public Domain film, and Creative Commons content; where you’ll be able to watch from either your Roku, SmartTV, or any YouTube enabled device. I try to focus on writing articles on things I personally like and or remembered growing up. So, just about every post you’re reading on my blog is the best of me; and if you’re a TRUE fan of the classics, and if your tastes are like mine, you’re going to enjoy at least half of the music I write about.
My blog is truly about cultural DIVERSITY! So, if you’re expecting to see only hip hop here, this is most likely NOT the blog site for you! I am a rare handful of multicultural bloggers of color, to own one of the most diverse classic music blogs in cyberspace. In a world full of copy & paste bandits, I pride myself in working hard to write my own shit! I’ve taken extreme measures in making sure that the content you’ll read here is unique and are of my own memories, experiences, and thoughts (as a PERSONAL BLOG should).
I VERY much enjoy hand blogging (A LOT), and wanted to help breath life again to the many genres that have been forgotten about, ignored, and or perhaps abandoned. So much of what we find on search engines today, as it pertains to “classic” music for example, usually centers around either the old school hip hop era, or classicAL music specifically. Now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with those types of music, I’m just trying say that our music culture is far too rich and broad for the internet to be inundated with those genres, as it pertains to old school. It feels almost impossible to find any other classic genres. However, it is also true that we don’t have enough Black bloggers unfortunately. But, I digress… I do hope that my readers understand what I’m trying to say.
I’m working hard to not only bridge that gap between the old/new and technology. But I’m also trying to bust wide open the stereotype about bloggers of color, that not all of us are exclusively interested in only hip hop, basketball or even Blaxploitation as we talk about classic entertainment. Neither should MY people expect that those genres/subjects be my only interest, or make it a prerequisite before finding my blog worthy of reading. I have have so much to offer, and you’d be really doing a disservice to yourself. We are extremely diverse in interest, just as with any other race.
Although technically, I don’t work in the music industry, I’ve been a heavy fan of music since childhood, and I’m very well informed in that area (both as a fan and a blogger), which makes my blog worth visiting frequently. I want to also focus on the lesser known/remembered pioneers of the entertainment industry. I designed my blog simple and easy to navigate; without the intrusive background popups and annoying widgets that take forever to load.
I recommend that you bookmark my site and visit at least once every week. For best results, please use Firefox on mobile phones and tablets. I frequently update my blog with something new. Follow me on twitter to get my classic tweets. If you’d like to also contact me, you can do so by sending me a direct message through twitter. Please be kind and tell your friends about the most diverse classic blogger of color in cyberspace!
