When Pop Historian Harvey Kubernik heard the six Beatles songs I had recorded under the title Reflections: A Beatles Tribute, he asked to interview me about my life and the experiences that led to my recording songs of the Fab Four. I think you'll be able to relate to my journey. It has been delicious and the trip hasn't ended!
Introduction to the interview:
"By the time I was a 3-year-old, my parents had me taking lessons: French, diction, dancing, piano and later the flute. Eventually I went to college and by the time I was in my mid 20's I had also managed to collect two divorces. I was exhausted. I felt old. That is until the British Invasion of the ‘60s – an invasion that changed the social fabric of my life – I think of all our lives. It was a spirit that swept in on a psychedelic breeze and it certainly made me feel young again. I still feel younger than I did in my ‘20s, and the Beatles with their exuberance led the charge. Thank you Beatles!"

This one's for you, Baby Boomers! Click on the picture to view the short video "Flute Fun" that I wrote and co-produced with one of my cousins. I'm hoping it will inspire you to find the musical instrument you played in high school and start blowing again. This video features folk songs and simple classical songs you can play for yourself, for your friends and for special occasions -- but it's kind of tongue-in-cheek so don't worry. It's definitely not academic! Of course you'll include Beatles songs in your new repertoire. You probably have at least one of their songs books somewhere. Re-engaging with music can lighten your load. No kidding!
