'Radio Flier - Music Geek

Greetings Champion(s)

A Civilization Is Known For Two Things:
It's Arts And It's Wars.

When Talking About "The Arts"
You Must Add: "Music"
What A Painter Does With His Paintbrush
Is What A Poet/Songwriter/Composer
Does For The Arts Enthusiasts:
Now That Being Said:
"Classical Music" Originated
In Europe Back In 1500's;
You Can Not Leave It Out
Because Classical Music Influences
Modern Day Music.

Now Let's Fast Forward (Pun Intended)
To The 1900's Also Known As The 20th Century.

So Like I Said: Fast Forward To The
1900's/20th Century: Location:
North America: America To Be Precise.
Now: American Music
Is Like The "Tap Dance"
To Europe's Ballet But It Is:
Our "Culture".
Side Note: Tap Dancing Originated In America
From The 1920's. 

That Being Said: America
In The Past Century Is:
Present Day

 Also Known As:
It Is A Showcase Of:
North American Creative Innovative Powerhouses.
(Or What I Like To Call: The Levi's Showdown)
