I blame the loss of the old classic songs squarely on the record labels who have forced smaller and smaller "play Lists" on the radio stations, and charge higher and higher fees for the honour of playing the songs they are trying to sell.

I stopped listening to broadcast radio when it got to the point where you would hear the same songs 3-4 times EVERY DAY, and switched to internet radio - until the likes of Sony cut them down to size as well.

About the ONLY exposure to music older than a few years is now in films.

Yeah, it's not uncommon to hear the same song being played on 2 or 3 radio stations at the same time anymore. It's just kind of sad.

That being said I'm 26 and completely familiar with Rodgers and Hammerstein and actually quite a bit of music from the 30s and 40s, so I wouldn't go so far as to think of those songs as "lost."

Hi Dogreath,; it IS lost to large parts of the population; I go out of my way to expose the children under my care (and my own children), to as wide a variety of music - new, old and ancient - as possible; but the majority of children I encounter only get exposed to the local "popular" channels, or the main national channels at home.

Where I live that means BBC Radio One and either BBC Herefordshire and Worcestershire or the local commercial conglomeration (6 names - same playlist).

The same is true of where I work, most of the staff are under 35, and I can play music all week before they hear a song they recognise - usually something featured in a TV advert.
