This blog was created as a means of bringing music to the listener. It is my firm belief that as technology has progressed, music has been pushed away from the forefront, and is essentially background music to our daily lives. We like extravagance, instant gratification, and variety. Very few people in this day and age would sit down, dim the lights, and spin an LP in its entirety.

I also believe that music is one of the truest and strongest forms of human expression, and the fact that it is forgotten, tuned out, and commercialized is a travesty. So instead of whine about it, I thought I’d start a blog and a radio show to allow me to, well, whine about it.

Thanks so much for swinging by the ol’ TRR, hope to see you again!
