I was listening to alternative music way back in the early 1980s (yes I’m old) before it was even called alternative music (we called them small bands or unsigned bands).

The pendulum has swung way too far! So if you’ll need me I’ll be listening to James Taylor with a copy Reader’s Digest in hand. GET OFF MY LAWN HIPSTER! But leave your beer on the porch …
