My dad listens almost exclusively to classical music. He listens to a show on NPR (I think it's called From The Top) where talented young musicians come and perform. The host is Christopher O'Riley, who is an excellent pianist and also a huge Radiohead fan. Apparently O'Riley has played a couple of his Radiohead transcriptions on the show. (I just got his cd of Radiohead transcriptions a couple days ago - it's excellent stuff! )

To show you how hip my dad is to the modern pop/rock scene, he tells me one day "On From The Top, the pianist played a couple transcriptions of songs from that popular British band everyone is talking about these days."

Me: Um....that popular British band, thanks dad, you've narrowed it down a bunch. You mean Radiohead?

Dad: Yeah, that sounds like it.

Well I'm cough43cough and although I've loved Radiohead since The Bends, it was really Kid A that let me know that they were soulmates and then it just kept getting better. Recently I had a friend in my car who is 60 and HTTT was on at a low volume and as I was telling a story he suddenly made me be quiet when he caught Sail to the Moon in the background. I turned it up and we ended up sitting in the car for an hour as I went through one Radiohead song after another as he exclaimed, "Martha, why haven't you told me about Radiohead before? Why have you been holding this back from me? Where have I been while Radiohead was taking over the world?" It was incredible. Then I put on National Anthem insanely loud and he had some kind of religious experience.

edit: p.s. This particular 60 year old man was also running around naked at the original Woodstock ...

My mom tends to like Radiohead... as long as it isnt the most 3 most recent albums, which most of the time she says 'what is that noise?' while particular songs are playing.
I created this place. I hyped a band.
Now I own an ad agency. We hype brands.
All roads for me lead back to U2. Ain't it grand.
FB me. IG me. Tweet me.

I was thinking....not much room for mispronunciation there( my dad sometimes mispronounces the names of bads I like, makes me does)

and then I saw it!!
Rad IO Head

Now I may be as old as your dad Dave C, but when I was a girl, we described something good as being "rad" i.e. RADical.
Maybe Thom hangs out at It's Official?


Can your dad hear it yet?..the good things about radIOhead?
You can lead a parent to the stereo........

I love the music my kids play
