I don’t need an excuse to celebrate good music from sixties soul to seventies disco. The history of music is fascinating, and with such a wide range of genres there is always something new and exciting to discover particularly on Netflix which has a wide range of golden era classic musicals as well as more familiar ones which our kids listen to these days.
