Arts and Culture
One Saturday morning Rex Fowler came in early to WRUR on the day of an Aztec Two Step show. They were playing at 8 pm. The previous year he and Neal Shulman, the other half of the duo, came in. Great to hear them together doing some new songs and older ones I remember from college.
This time Rex was exposed as a solo artist. It felt like a secret we weren't supposed to talk about in public...

I like to abide by Duke Ellington's mantra that "There are two kinds of music: good music and bad music." But what defines good music? Let's consider some pieces of "new" music--are they good or not?
