Music consumers over 40 now account for nearly half of all "record" purchases. It appears young people download. Older folks plunk down hard cash for CDs. I spent a lot of my childhood at my paternal grandparents' house with six sensually beautiful Italian aunts with popular music continually on the radio and the Victrola.
In the summertime, my "zias" and I would spread out on the front lawn on worn cotton quilts and soak in the sun, a strong scent of Coppertone laced with iodine and baby oil in the atmosphere -- the sound of laughter and pop music filled the air.
Radio formats were looser back then: back to back, you could hear big bands, renowned vocalists, the noisy flavor-of-the-day, a novelty tune, a movie score -- all the Standards in the Great American Songbook, in no particular order. The current hits were repeated over and over and over, and I rarely tired of any of them.

The melodies and lyrics I'd listen to on those Fly Me To The Moon - James Last - Moments In Love (CD) days didn't fade when autumn came. I absorbed them; they became a part of me. Then one winter, my middle aunt, Anna-Marie, had a debilitating bout of rheumatic fever -- which damaged her young, weak, immune system.
Not long after, she was packed off to Cleveland Clinic for an experimental heart valve replacement, never to return. The tragedy put a pall on a Fly Me To The Moon - James Last - Moments In Love (CD) Italian haven -- a household overflowing with music, cigarette smoke, simmering pasta sauce on the Magic Chef, sweet smells from the oven, and ice-cube-clicking cocktail glasses -- suddenly as quiet as the church yard at midnight.
The music stopped. Radio was forbidden for a mandatory period of mourning and most of us wore black. The silence was devastating. The quiet in my house that winter only foreshadowed what was to become of my beloved Standards. In the monster pop hit "American Pie," singer-songwriter Don MacLean immortalized death, tears, smiles -- and repeated the lyrical line "the day the music died" a half-dozen times.
He might well have been lamenting the passing of American Popular Standards as well as the demise of once-mighty radio itself. Wiki Content. Explore Wikis Community Central. Register Don't have an account?
