All through the month of October 2012 - "Music" will be a theme here on Audioboo. There been great enthusiasm for the prospect.

To help us connect with each other under the banner of "Music"- #octaver is the hashtag (courtesy of Slandi).

Here is a suggested structure of topics for each day:

Day 1: "Music I like now..."
Day 2: "The earliest music I remember liking ..."
Day 3: "Music with a story..."
Day 4: "Musicians I've known or loved..."
Day 5: "Music that reminds me of a place..."
Day 6: "Music to go with go with food..."
Day 7: "Music I hope to love..."

It be great if someone else would suggest topics for Days 8-14 please.

The year was 1965 and the song I first remember--from the radio--was sung by The Beach Boys.

For the 2nd day of Octaver the theme is "earliest music i liked".


#Octaver Audioboo by @cyberviking

I read Bernie Goldbach's posting on G+, followed a link to omaniblog on Audioboo. I'm picking up on the challenge to do daily Audioboos for the next few days on the topic of Music, using the tag #octaver
So, today's Audioboo is "Music I like now".

Day 1: "Music I love now" : Opera by Verdi - father & daughter

By Omaniblog...

Day One of the Music "Festival" on Audioboo which we call #Octaver.
Paul O'Mahony @omaniblog + his daughter #omanidot on the #schoolrun...

Opera is the genre... Verdi the composer... "La Traviata" the drama... The scene is Act 2.

You hear a conversation that explains all...

Day 2: First music I loved

By Omaniblog...

Day 2 of Music "festival" on Audioboo.
What's the earliest music I loved?
You hear me mention the theme music of radio shows I tuned in to as a young boy:
Jimmy Clitheroe... Dick Barton... (forgot to include "Two-way Family Favourites") and especially "The Kennedys of Castleross"...
Music featured here:
Having often spoken about my first record, this is the one that formed the starting point of my musical journey during the 1960s - the first record I ever bought... (As teenager, I went on to become a big record collector.)
Until now I thought this came from 1957... It was first released in October 1961 - 51 years ago.
The Leon Young String Chorale were the backing group in the original recording (according to Wikipedia).
Marvellous to hear this 2007 recording by the guy who composed the clarinet piece named after his daughter "Jenny".
Maybe music prolongs active life?
Recognise it?
Andy Williams, The Drifters recorded it too...
Songfacts (Anne Wade) says it was originally called "Jenny" & had a name change when it became theme music for BBC TV series "Stranger on the Shore".
First UK music to top the US charts...
Good old Bernard Stanley Bilk of Somerset England "Acker Bilk" meaning "friend" Bilk (28 January 1929 -)
His original group was the Paramount Jazz Band...
To clarify: this was the first British single to top the US Bilboard Hot 100 Singles Chart - Vera Lynn "Auf Wiedersehn Sweetheart" topped US Billboard Chart in 1952).

Day 3: Music tells a story

By Omaniblog

The theme is "Music with a Story".
This provoked me to realise that all music tells a story...
Janacek the composer - Glagolitic Mass the story

Audioboo / Octaver - Day 3

For day 3 ... Music that tells a story .....

Audioboo / Octaver - Day 4

It's day 4 so it must be "Musicians I've known or loved..."
This includeds a part of Foggy Notion by The Velvet Underground from Polydor (ASIN: B000008LZA)

Audioboo / #octaver Day 2 - My first music experiences.

A few examples of the music I first heard and appreciated, growing up as a young lad in Scotland.
Tracks are :- Jock o'Hazeldeane (instremental backing ) by a great guitarist - lesjcheetham ...

These are my mountains by Kenneth McKellar.
Medley of songs by Andy Stewart.
