What was your first music experience?
I remember being younger and going places with my father. He would always be playing music in the car, whenever I would ask him who It is he would know their name at the drop of a hat. I liked the sound of what I was listening to so I asked, but also surprised at all he was familiar with. My mother also sang, but very rarely.
