A thought went through my mind last night that made me shudder: In 20 years there will be radio stations playing classic rap. K-tel and Time-Life records will sell volumes of "Great Rap Songs of the '80s and '90s" on late night TV with toll free numbers and credit cards and ads that extol the idyllic '80s.... And Zamfir will probably play well known rap themes on the pan flute, as well. An 8 record set for $49.95. Think about this the next time you tune your radio to classic rock, and listen to your favorite 20 year old music. A local classic rock station uses the motto: "It doesn't have to be old to be classic." Of course not. It just has to sound that way.
