Contrary to popular culture/belief, there really was music before the iPod and iTunes.

Heck, there even was music before CDs, before cassettes, and – gasp! – before albums! (See, there used to be these things, called albums, and they were usually black vinyl, about 12 inches in diameter, with a little hole in the middle. There was a series of grooves – actually one loooooong spiral groove! – that went around the surfaces – there were two sides! – of the album. Those grooves are where the music hid! But I digress…)

There was music before U2, Rascal Flatts, and Mary J. Blige. There was music before Lynyrd Skynyrd, George Strait, and Diana Ross. There was music before The Beatles, Buck Owens, and Etta James. Believe it or not, there was even music before Elvis, Hank (Sr. and Jr. and III), and Billie Holiday!

I say all that to say that tonight’s Unwind is from a little bit earlier time frame than any of those folks. Tonight, I’m unwinding with Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons.

What a perfect way to unwind on what turned out – after a pretty blustery morning – to be a gorgeous spring day in northwest Georgia!
