I have BCulbertson's dvd along with several cd's, but some of his history is on the dvd. His father is playing trumpet in it as well.

I hear a lot of these new artists on the many music channels we get on the satellite tv we're signed up for, & go to youtube to watch them. Then I purchase. I LOVE MUSIC, & lots of types!

Patricia, as much as I love music, I'm so out of touch with many of the more recent artists.  I've only heard of five that you listed.  Brian Culbertson went to the same college as me, but not at the same time.  He's much younger.  His father was a long time high school band director at MacArthur High School, one of the big public schools in Decatur, Illinois where I went to college (Millikin University.)  He also attended Millikin but prior to when I was there.

That's a funny Ray Stevens clip, Spud.  Reminds me of the old Spike Jones music.  I grew up listening to my grandmother's Spike Jones records on 78rpm.

Same for me.  I also laughed at Homer & Jethro when I was a kid.

Ray Stevens is hilarious. I also used to laugh at Homer & Jethro when I was a kid......I had so little to laugh at otherwise.

Generally speaking, I like music with a little life in it:

You're welcome, Carl.

I only wish I would have "discovered" Baroque earlier in my life. Better late than never.

Randy, J.J. Quantz is a new name for me.  I just read his Wikipedia article.  Sounds like he was very influential regarding everything flute related:  playing, performing and instrument design,  I'll have to research his music more.  Thanks for the introduction.
