MCHPlayingPiano 900x900Who Inspired You?

One of my favorite questions to ask musicians I interview is about their earliest memories of music, and to identify THE moment they fell in love with music.

My earliest memory is of my mom playing piano. I know that my dad played the violin (I still have his student violin), but I never heard him play. She rarely had time to play, but every now and then would sit down at the upright in our living room and play.

We had a console music center with record player and radio, and a nifty external speaker you could plug into any electric outlet in the house and listen to what was playing without running speaker cable.
