  1. These movies have been educational, mind-opening.. such an enjoyable way to bring the
    subject music to life. Just in case there was any ambiguity.. can't have any of that!

    You could add concert ones (like the TAMI Show). Appreciate the 30 so far. Thanks BB.

    1. Hi mrRadio,
      It is rewarding for me to hear that some of the movies I have shared have some value to the visitors.
      I have stopped movies for a little while but will return to then in the future. I have many more ready and a LOT of great concert videos.
      The Tami Show is just superb.
