Should I have listened? (An experiment)
Rushing around this morning getting ready to give a talk at Coventry University tomorrow, I thought I might try and post a poll, for no other reason than you can post polls on Word Press, and I wanted to see how they work. But what to ask?
Then I remembered a day in 1973. I was up in my room playing the latest album that I’d just bought at Noise, the legendary Newhaven record shop. It was Uriah Heep Live. My Mum was downstairs, where she and Ralph my Old Feller were listening to Nat King Cole. My Mum shouted up the stairs, telling me to turn it down. Later she said, ‘One day you’ll like real music!’ I scoffed at her terminal un-hipness.
My question, therefore, is this. Based on the evidence provided, should I have listened more often to my poor old Mum?
I thank you for your kind participation.
