Chapter 1: Who Am I, and Why Am I Here?

Myron Bennett with Oscar Treadwell and friends
at a taping of "OT's Jazz Rap."

If you’re on the air, you do a lot of introducing yourself, because there is always at least one person who never heard you before, who has no idea of who you are. You introduce yourself a lot. So for those of you who might have started listening to WGUC after I retired, I used to say this every weekday afternoon: “Good afternoon! The program is PM, and I’m Myron Bennett.”
And then we’d spend some time together listening to music. Since the 30-plus years I was with WGUC were perhaps the largest part of that story, I wanted to share it with you who listened then, and perhaps this way, be on WGUC one more time.

To those who were around back then, it is good to be in touch with you again, and to those who weren’t, I’m asking your indulgence. To those who are wondering why I’m taking a hunk of cyberspace and what makes me think you’d want to read it, I’ll just tell you that I’d like to share with you some thoughts I’ve been having about music -- about what music meant to me throughout my life, and what it is coming to mean to me now. There will be a lot, probably too much, about how my connection to music has fared through the years. If you stick with me to the end of this writing, I hope my thoughts will at least amuse you, or perhaps you’ll find something that relates to your relationship with music.

This piece came about because I reached my 75th birthday in April of this year, and though I’m not a very nostalgic person, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about that span of my life so far… and about music.
