  • New PBS series on music recording - "Soundbreaking"

    Begins tonight. Looks interesting.

    Whether the rush of harmonies in “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” the thrilling beat of Little Richard’s “Keep a Knockin’” or the delicate lyricism of Joni Mitchell’s “California,” music’s ability to carry us into the sublime often suggests that its creation is somehow divinely inspired.

              How can you not watch TV now? With HDTV and over 1000 frickin channels, there is always at least one or two good shows on!

            This show is for Musicphiles, not Audiophiles.

              OK, I'll bite. Musicophile. Pretty much describes me. I would rather listen to the music I love on an old nine transistor AM radio I used to have fifty years ago rather than something that does nothing for me on the best system extant.

              I don't agree that audiophiles love quality regardless of music. If so I don't know any audiophiles.

            I don't know if anyone else noticed. Imagine you're 16 and your high school dance band is Cream, and they bring in a guest for a few songs, Jimi Hendrix.
