    I like big band until the brass starts getting too heavy. I'm not a brass fan.

    I was fortunate to have my grandparents introduce me to this wonderful music when I was a kid.

    I love this music. I was lucky, when I was a kid, 'cause I got to go to the Steel Pier in Atlantic City a lot. For a rather nominal admission charge we got to see two movies, two stage shows, a major popular entertainer of the time, the diving horse and water theatre act, and the big bands. The bands were always in the Marine Ballroom in the evening and I loved listening to them. Wow, what a time that was. I doubt that there was ever a better deal, anywhere. That was a lot of entertainment for the money.

    I, too, had grandparents that loved this music and introduced me to it. They had what they called a "Victrola" (but it wasn't because it wasn't a wind-up machine) in the front room and my grandfather would put on the old lacquer 78s (those records with one song on each side and broke if you dropped them...for those too young to have seen or handled these classic discs) of all the Big Band songs that were popular during the 30s and 40s. When I got older and my grandparents felt I was responsible enough to not drop these records, I was allowed to put them on myself.

    Somewhere in one of the boxes I've never unpacked, I've got the classic collection of all these favorites on CD. I'm going to have to go dig them out and just spend one weekend quietly enjoying the music from a time before the "electronic revolution" ... where the internet, cell phones and television didn't exist as the predominant source of entertainment.
