"Beautiful Music" was a radio format that flourished for two or three decades, but is now nearly extinct. This format featured the most soporific, vanilla stuff on the planet, by artists like James Last, Mantovani, Frank Chacksfield, and Burt Kaempfert (lots of Brits and Germans). I don't know why, but I find this stuff amusing, enjoyable and entertaining; I often seek out "Beautiful Music" radio stations during my travels. Again, there are hardly any of those stations left, for the simple reason that the target demographic is aging out of existence. Tonight on "The Bottomless Pit" at 10, tune in for a big fat dose of musical Soma® as I do my part to keep "Beautiful Music" alive, if just for an hour.
