The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2019 is
'Grounded in Truth, Walk Together with Courage'

This week we will be playing music when students walk to class to recognise these significant milestones.

Flashback 70's.....Suzi Qautro

Before I did what I did, we didn't have a place in rock 'n' roll. Not really.  I was the first to be taken seriously as a female rock 'n' roll musician and singer. That hadn't been done before. I played the boys at their own game. For everybody that came afterward, it was a little bit easier, which is good. I'm proud of that. If I have a legacy, that's what it is. It's nothing I take lightly. It was gonna happen sooner or later. I have done my job more than 50 years.

Tribute to Doris Day

Doris gained a vocal education by listening to the radio, becoming a fan of the embryonic records of upcoming Ella Fitzgerald. Her mother encouraged her to take singing lessons. Alma took Doris to see vocal coach Grace Raine, who was so impressed with Doris' natural talent that she offered her three lessons for the price of one.  Doris credits Raine with impressing upon her the importance of delivering a lyric, and today Doris says that Raine had the greatest impact on her singing career.

Hope you enjoy walking to class to the great Doris Day

Party like it's 1999 - Playlist

This week we  play songs from  1999

To travel back in time to 1999, you have to start by shedding a few things, as though you’re going through airport security. No iPod. No smartphone. No YouTube. No Facebook. No Twitter. In 1999, the Internet was shiny-new and just out of the box, and we still believed that its greatest utility was to deliver dog food to our door and packs of gum and cigarettes to us by hand. We were just starting to figure out that the new search site Google, which had launched in 1998, might prove useful for something. We couldn’t yet peek 24/7 through our neighbor’s digital windows. We knew the word friend but not the word unfriend.
We were excited about the new century, but also anxious.

Culturally, though, the decade that started in a bang of guitar fuzz and feedback was ending in a whimper of boy-band harmonies. Nirvana gave way to Candlebox gave way to Britney Spears; Public Enemy was usurped by Puff Daddy. 1999 was both the year that Ricky Martin sang “Livin’ La Vida Loca” and the year that Napster launched, so it was the last time it felt like everyone was listening to the exact same song at the exact same time.

In fact, 1999 can be pinpointed as Precisely the Last Year of How Things Used to Be. We listened to music on stereos. We watched TV on TVs. We read books in books and newspapers on newspaper. We didn’t yet suspect that our desktops and laptops, lurking innocently in our workspaces and spoon-feeding us e-mail, were exerting a black-hole tug on our lives.

enjoy the  music...
