Hi, my name is Randy, AKA, "The MannBlack." I can't remember a time that I didn't like music. I wasn't always a fan of Country. Growing up, music was always playing in the house. There was one television and my parents controlled the dial. (That's right -- no remotes in those days.)
On the weekends it was music, till all hours on the weekends. They force-fed us Elvis and Johnny Cash. Included were various oldies and Country Western. I couldn't stand it. I loved Led Zepplin, Van Halen, and most anything else in that genre.
Both of my sons are adults now. They enjoy music, but not to the extent that I always have. Since then, my oldest son has married and he and my daughter in-law have a son, my first grandchild, who is 20 months old. He LOVES MUSIC. When I visit, it's not long before he's asking for my car keys and a trip to my car. He loves to turn on the radio. And as soon as he hears something he likes, he starts dancing. He anticipates my reaction. I'm expected to join in, which I do.
Another music lover. I love it.
By the way, his favorite performer: Elmo -- Any Song!
