This is a wonderful segment, one I totally I agree with. I have been a volunteer for over 30 years, in all categories, still volunteering, but nearly all my volunteering years I have introduced music to the people I am caring for. learning the piano, at 8 years taught the old way, scales, scales, scales, , but for many many years playing "down memory lane songs, " It works magic, not only for the ones you are looking after but for yourself as well. The thing is with me , an oldie, late 80's I remember all the really old songs, have a collection of wonderful "down memory lane" songs plus all my sheet music for the piano, I am never happier than playing this old time for myself, and lucky enough to be still passing it on to other oldies. Thanks once again for your .segment. Covid 19 music activities
