Why are we limited to songs from the list of Music Legends?
The 50's through the 80's is when the majority of Baby Boomers were born or came of age but are also the era of musicians that seem to have decided to have their final tours. During this magical time in history there was huge volumes of unique and special music released.
Unfortunately our age group is getting older and many of our music legends are passing on. Our focus on this generation of music is to be sure we tell the musicians how we feel about what they contributed to our lives before we lose them. And if we have lost a legend, the importance remains to honor their music for those they left behind, and to contribute to the overall preservation of the music.
It is our goal that the music legends have the pleasure of reading about the magic we found in their songs and learn how much we care for them and their music. For these reasons the Cosmic Radio is highlighting these decades.
We are open to publishing SongBooks up to and including the 2000 decade, when those songs were released by the artists listed on the Music Legends page.
