Papa Loves Mambo – prompt by the Daily Post

Papa Loves Mambo

What sort of music was played in your house when you were growing up? What effect, (if any) did it have on your musical tastes?

_________________________________________

I grew up on the music such as you would find on the Lawrence Welk show from the 50’s and 60’s and it gave me quite an education in that music. My dad still watches the show on Public Television and sometimes I am there too and I remember that music from my childhood.

Now my tastes were quite different. I loved Rock and Metal and Punk. Still do. I even went through a phase of Rap with my son as a teenager. I figured I wanted to listen to what he found so interesting and actually became a listener myself and knew the rappers names and their songs. The kids I worked with at the movie theater thought I was a cool mom because they weren’t allowed to listen to it and I could name songs and artists and even knew the words. Their parents thought they were stopping them by taking the CD away, but they told me they just got another copy made. Someone was making copies of all the CD’s for the kids. So I openly allowed my teen son to listen and listened with him.
