    Just had this conversation a few days ago…..during the 80s there was the easily accessible MuchMusic which kept us informed this side of the ocean with its disciples (critics) and teachers (A&R). We learned valuable lessons through music….politics, socio/economic status, artistic perspective amongst a catalogue of potential visions and future concepts etc. Now…..I don’t know if it’s bitterness in old age or if it’s because I’ve since left the cool kids as I stumble into adulthood, but not only do I miss the knowledgeable content we once held sacred, but I just can’t get my head around some of the recent pop culture episodes of Silent Library or Jersey Shore.
