Gee, Duane Eddy . . . . I was a radio DJ in the summers of 62 and 63 in Manila, and my opening and closing theme song was, "Rebel Rouser" by Duane Eddy! I needed to be different, and I chose Duane Eddy's music over The Ventures, who were a lot more popular there then.

So, have you found a CD with "Songs of Our Heritage" since then?

Wow (not in a good way)! On Amazon.com they have some stuff but mostly discontinued. On Amazon.co.uk they also have some, but the boxed set is UKŁ516 - US$1000 - sorry but that is too pricey and besides it is not "Songs of our Heritage", which I might not rate after all this time! Why spoil a fantasy with a dose of reality!!

I suppose I should mention that I also have a thang for music where I can't understand a word of what is being sung. I'm madly in love with an album from a Norse prog rock band that took the old Norse sagas and put them to music. The band's called YM:Stammen, the album "Guden i Steinen"

If you're looking for just the album "Songs of Our Heritage", there was a re-issue on CD format in 2003, I believe. Here are some sources that are not so expensive as what you found:
Amazon.com: Used and New: Songs of Our Heritage

Amazon.com: Songs of Our Heritage: Duane Eddy: Music

Duane Eddy - Songs of Our Heritage in Music: '60s at JR.com

Sweet! Music-one of my other great loves! For me, I've always been a rock fan. I was born in the early 70's and my parents were always playing music around the house or in the car. I love almost all of what is considered "Classic" rock-Zeppelin, Aerosmith, KISS, The Doors, ZZ Top etc. I'm also a huge 80's rock fan-Motley Crue, Ratt, etc, love bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Queensryche, Metallica, Megadeth, Disturbed, Shindedown, Nickleback,etc. Then again, I also like some country, blues, and some Christian music. But I'll always be a headbanger at heart. Rock on!

Music is an emotion to me.....different verses for different times. 90% of the time I have some form of metal banging through my head, usually in the mornings I have Dagoba (French Industrial / Metalcore) or In Flames (Melodic death / Progressive Metalcore) blasting out my ears on my ride to work. Throughout the day I like being inspired by a more progressive approach such as Dream Theater (Prog Rock) or Soilwork (Prog Death / Melodic Death). By the end of the day into the afternoon I enjoy having "pretty" sounds all around me consisting of Kittie (Hardcore), Lacuna Coil (Goth), Within Temptation (goth), and Arch Enemy (straight deth, yo!), etc. After I put my kids to bed and kick on the XboX 360, I turn into a glowstick flinging, liquid-poppin, party light turnin-onin Hard House, Trip-Hop, Eclectic Trance, and Hard Garage FREAK!! My friend (DJ Darius) got me into the trip-hop and Garage stuff when he came home from Michigan and threw me about 5 of his CD's and told me to melt my brain with them.....lol. And there are some days I turn to Rap (even the strong have a meltdown every now and again) and Horrorcore rap. Horrorcore , i.e., Ill Bill, Brotha Lynch Hung, old Mister Doctor, SicX, Baby Regg.

BTW, to me country music doesn't exist.........what people call country nowadays, I call Pop. If you are talking Hank Williams Sr., Conway Twitty or anything that involves a guy losing his wife to his horse and taking his pickup with his dog tied in the bed of said truck and his mobile home rolling down a hill all in one song verse. For the simple fact that I cant stand pop or country for any length of time. The only radio stations I listen to are classic rock and modern rock, and even those I have to turn off after so long.

Here's an interesting mix of jazz and classical- The Nutcracker, by Project.

Well I see this is an older post but since it resurfaced I am listening to a great radio station in Myrtle Beach SC 105.9 WEZV FM they are great. There is nothing that frustrates me more than the stations here in the Twin Cities( and maybe lots of cities) they play all or nothing, all country, all rap, all classical, all pop etc. This station plays a huge variety of artists, Frand Sinatra, Andre Bocelli, Josh Groban, Kenny Rogers, Beach Boys, etc., they keep my day going here at work, I pull them up on the computer and I am a happy camper.

Repete (Czechoslovak)


Uksjuši (Russian), SMS Format (Ukrainian)...

I doubt anyone of you knows those bands.

And of course Instrumentals. Monti Csárdás, ladies and gentlemen, written in Italy, best played in Hungaria and at my place. LOL. Look at the speed of his fingers. That's why I'm so popular in girl circles.



When I play this on my accordion I usually do so along with Rufat running in the background. Is there someone who can understand why he laughs at the end? If not, then try to play Monti csardas and once you do it flawlessly, you will know.
