A new discovery I should have made long ago...

Today I discovered digital radio. Digital, free, swinging radio with jazz music from the 1920s, '30s and '40s and so forth!!

Wow. I feel like Dobby, hitting myself in the head with a table lamp. WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS A BIT SOONER?!?! I mean - I've always been thinking, being all grumpy and complaining: "Hm, why isn't there a radio channel only dedicated to all that terrific music from the good old days? The swing, the big bands, Glenn Miller, barbershop, Benny Goodman, ragtime, etc. etc.! Really..! *very indignant expression* It's such a shame that no one remembers or plays those old numbers - except some jazz clubs and Woody Allen, of course - and if I ever grow up, I want to start my own radio channel AND my own cinema that only have old music and movies! Yes, maam!" ......... 

Then today, out of the blue, I had this brilliant idea like it was some new Albert Einstein or Sherlock Holmes invention: "Hey, why not try and look it up on the Internet? I mean, there must be SOME radio channel out there that plays Benny Goodman all the time..!"

Feel free to laugh your pants off because of my stupidity. I did it myself. But sometimes one is just too blind to the most obvious.

Anyway, I might be blind, but at least now I've got my ears filled lovely swing music! ;D
