My son, who turns 7 on Sept.1, is a Beatle fanatic. He's been listening since he was a baby. He knows every song, and can tell you what album a song is on, and other facts. I think The Beatles had a big part in his early language development, he was speaking and singing at a very young age. It also helped with his reading and spelling because he was so enthusiastic about learning the names of the songs that he started reading titles from albums and cd's. It's been an obsession that I don't really mind. We took him to see "The Fab Faux" at The State Theatre and he loved every second. Anyone who tells you that music and art are educational frills is a moron.
With Musikfest approaching, I hope some of you decide to "listen your way" through the festival as you enjoy the food. Anyone going to see John Fogerty?
