    • Congratulations Howard and yes, you do rock, These are all my favorite oldies, Howard. I hardly know any of the latest songs or artists. There are some really awesome solo artists also and I am going to try to make a quiz about them too.

    • Thank you for taking the quiz. While growing up my young ears got the sounds of classical while dad worked at this desk and mom enjoyed playing popular Latvian music records, I educated myself in rock and roll when I got older but I also like a vast genre of music even opera. What do you think? Would a quiz on some of the opera masters work?
