Drop in on this site for music they just don't make anymore

A cool site for baby boomers to visit and do some exploring is online.

At the site are recorded concerts from the 1960s, '70s and beyond that you won't believe. The Allman Brothers, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones. It's not just guys and guitars; you'll find A Guy Called Gerald and A Tribe Called Quest, among other dance and hip-hop acts.

Listen on your computer, and buy T-shirts and other merchandise to help, an ad-free site (if you don't count ads for T-shirts and other merchandise).

Concert promoter Bill Graham taped thousands of big-name acts at shows over the years, and they're now on the Web as sort of a rock museum. You can't listen to whom you want, when you want. You drop in and listen, just as you would with any oldies radio station.

But there are no deejays and no commercials - there's just the kind of music they don't make anymore.
