As a child I was always listening to classical music because that is what my parents played on their radiogram. Large 78 rpm discs that needed a new needle for every play. We bought them in boxes of 100. I listened to what my parents bought which included Paul Robeson, Peter Dawson, Gwen Catley and other classical singers of that era but when more modern music began to to be broadcast in U.K. (and I had my own little transistor radio) I listened to Paul Anker, The Beach Boys, The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly and the Crickets, Helen Shapiro, Lulu, The Swinging Blue Jeans and lots more. I liked the British and the American pop scene at that time and that kind of music has never been repeated. That is why so many people enjoy going to hear tribute bands to these singers from the 60s. My parents just could not see the attraction my brothers and I had to the 'new' music of that era. Nothing has been as good since the '60s.
