Substitute 1925 for 1924, and that's my family. My parents tolerated my sisters' and my love of rock n' roll when I was growing up, but that was the extent of it.

OTOH, the Firebug and I listen to a lot of the same stuff. (He turns 10 this year. I became a parent kind of on the late side, I know. ) I've got a playlist of recent stuff we play a lot in the car that includes groups like Cage the Elephant and Florence + The Machine, and he loves most of the stuff on it.
