I'm so happy to have grown up in that era , also
Question is though is how much of that era of music carries over to the next gen?
It's interesting to note that with time , relativity is not a function of age anymore - meaning that in the 60's , songs from the 30's and 40's and 50's were considered so out-dated - yet they were barely about 25-30 years old and rarely were played on the popular radio stations. . Comparing to today where songs from the 60's , 70's , 80's still get much air time. Maybe a few exceptions were the Sinatra/Martin/Crosby crooners (though they continued to make records in the 60's and 70's).
FWIW, mediums like Youtube are helping to keep the old classics alive, a good thing.
