My Musical Evolution – Part 86 BFMS The Last Dance

Well, we’re about to wrap up the era known as BFMS. Maybe we should do an little recap. What have we learned so far? I liked what I felt was a wide variety of musical flavors. Pop music, Folk music, Disco, Rock and Roll, Classical, Show tunes,  and Soundtracks just about anything except for country.  For […]

My Musical Evolution – Part 80 BFMS You Should Be Dancing

I can’t understand why there ended up being such an anti-disco movement.  I thought some of it was rather clever.
