So here’s the promised sequel to the my previous SNSI episode on Generations.
This set got me thinking about past and future generational clashes. The last significant generational clash was in the late ’60s, I think (or has that generation grossly exaggerated that era). To be sure, the punk movement rattled the elder’s cages but that was just a toothless threat. Now with kids living with the parents well into their 20’s it’s getting more difficult to foresee future generations organizing a righteous movement against establishment. Perhaps there should be a movement forcing the baby boomers back to work so they don’t completely drain social services for future generations.

RTH Saturday Night Shut-In, episode 113 by Mrmoderator on Mixcloud
The RTH player is having some technical difficulties. I’ve posted this show to Mixcloud. See the link at the bottom of this post.
We got through about half of the set yesterday, before heading off to throw my parents their 50th Wedding Anniversary party. This seemed an appropriate set. “Song For A Future Generation” always makes me happy (although we should have served tomatoes and chinese noodles at the shindig). For our speech, we did a Top 10 list of things we love about my parents, and one of the entries was their Love of Music. Nice to be reminded that some good things trickle down through the generations.
