When I was growing up in the 50s, my mother always had the radio on, playing the old standards (Great American Songbook) from the 30s-50s. My father listened to classical and show tunes. My musical taste includes everything they listened to, plus a shitload more. They never got into rock, jazz, opera or operetta.

But once, about 15 years ago, when my mother was living with me, I came home late one night, and she was raving about this group on TV. She had never heard of them, but she really loved their music. It was the Mamas and the Papas.
