Quote Samurai Jack:
also, time is an excellent filter: the good stuff sticks around. the rubbish stuff falls by the wayside. i would wager that there was an equal amount of rubbish floating around in the 60s and 70s but has long since been forgotten.
Very true - we didn't have much pop music in our house in the 60's until I found Radio Luxembourg around 1969. When I heard a tape of the early days of Radio 1 a few years later I was amazed at how many songs I didn't recognise because they hadn't been played on the radio since they were in the charts. Actually, I don't think I've ever heard things like The Move's 'Fire Brigade' since listening to those tapes.
