Changing It Up

Those who have been kind enough to join with me on my blogging journey know that I have fairly broad tastes in music.  There isn’t much music I don’t like, except for disco and  what passes as music these days. Today’s available technology makes it easy for any basement dweller  to create a recording that someone will buy, regardless of how bad it is.

The last year or two, I have immersed myself in the music of the Danish composer & organist, Dieterich Buxtehude. Regarded as one of the most significant composers of the Baroque period (mid-late 1600’s), his resume includes J. S. Bach as one of his students. Good stuff and I encourage you to seek some of his works out.

I’m not sure why, but my musical tastes have shifted a little bit the last month.  Possibly, it may have something to do with the song,  Windfall,  that we used to cover in our band.  A friend was recently sharing a story about driving through the desert in Arizona and finding a radio station that his late father would enjoy listening to.

Switching it over to AM
Searching for a truer sound
Can’t recall the call letters
Steel guitar and settle down. Catching an all-night station somewhere in Louisiana
It sounds like 1963, but for now it sounds like heaven . . . Windfall, by Jay Farrar

So, these days, I am mostly  listening to Cajun Music Radio.  Described as being “dedicated to preserving and promoting the authentic pure Cajun French music of Louisiana”, it is unique to itself.

It is pure, raw music, played on acoustic instruments.  Music, the way it’s meant to be played and enjoyed. Who cares if I don’t understand the language?

Information regarding the “station” seems to be well-hidden on the Internet, but the free App works just fine and while there are many radio stations broadcasting Cajun music, this is my favorite.

May the wind take your troubles away.
