As I sit here at my desk writing, I am listening to the Longines Symphonette Society’s version of My Favorite Things. You may think this is a hyper-hip new group that one finds on KCRW. But it is not. It is as easy listening as it sounds. It amazes me that I can find such a wealth of easy listening on Spotify. Why would hipsters listen to The Melachrino Strings and Orchestra’s Music for Romance? They may be cool and have beards, bangs, and beanies, but I’m sure even hipsters entertain. And perhaps they would prefer the dulcite tones of Lawrence Welk during dinner rather than STRFKR.On that note, I pulled out some of my favorite records. It’s easy to make fun of the design of these, but is that really fair? Yes, they have sexual overtones and everyone has a doped up rufie and druggy look. But consider the audience. These records were played during dinner or cocktail parties. Perhaps the goal was a swingers type situation with guests. Then they are perfect. Or, one’s date might put one on the hi-fi, turn the lights low, ply a date with alcohol and… Again, the form and content address the message.I will admit, I love the A Man and A Woman cover.

Klemm Bell Reunion Day

Terry Klemm and Reg Bell were two of the biggest names in Victorian board-making throughout the ’60s and ’70s and together ran one of Australia’s most respected, innovative labels, namely Klemm-Bell Surfboards.

And now an overdue reunion of surfers, workers, fans and Terry and Reg themselves is on the way – and already over 100 Klemm-Bell boards are registered along with many of the KB shapers, glassers and teamriders throughout the years.

Many attendees haven’t seen each other for 25-30 years so it should be one amazing day – even got Murray Walding’s band the Southside Hodads playing.

Everybody is welcome – Sunday January 8, 10am to 4pm, 40-58 Melbourne Rd. Williamstown Vicco
