Neither of my parents played a musical instrument however when I was growing up, anytime I expressed interest in the arts, both offered to subsidize my efforts. My parents sang along to songs on the radio. My father left behind his 78 collection of music which include the greatest hits of Nat King Cole.
Will future generations leave behind their musical cloud? Or will it be an outdated iPod with an IOS that is no longer supported by it's parent company? Just asking.
