Handmade, original and significant

There are still pockets of our culture where a single individual can create and share a body of work that’s resonant and unique.

I’ve become hooked on a podcast called A History of Rock Music in 500 Songs.

I’m now a backer on Patreon. The show is at https://500songs.com/ [My suggestion is that you start with a song you know and love instead of beginning at the beginning.]

It’s simply extraordinary. Trivia connected to cultural commentary connected to the endless web of the pop music world. Hundreds of hours of insight and connection, all written, narrated and produced by a single person.

There’s a lot to be said about the power of teams to create art and magic. But there’s still room for individuals to do this as well.

[While we’re talking music, happy to suggest a piece of software that might change how you find and play it. Built by a team, not an individual, Roon is a game-changer.]
