I love all kinds of music. A lot of the best music was made before I was born, and some of it even pre-dates my parents. Here’s a site dedicated to some of the great tunes of my grandmother’s youth. Thanks to James Lileks for bringing this site to my attention. I have a bunch of CDs, too, that my dad made for me. The songs are culled from 78s he and I have bought over the last couple of years. My Dad digitizes the music, cleans up the recordings a bit with his fancy software and then makes these wonderful CDs of songs from the 20s through 50s.
