Music Flashbacks


You can’t focus on politics all the time because if you did, well, quite frankly, you’d go stark raving mad! That’s why we are making sure that we have some fun pages here as well.

Every week, we’ll try to post some great musical flashbacks for your amusement and/or enjoyment, whichever way you look at it is just fine. The most important thing is that we hope some of the music we dig up will bring back some good memories for some of you and for those of you, perhaps it will be a new experience for you.
