The Whole World's Waiting


This CD was released in 1992.


One of the things I remember most from my childhood is music. I remember the record player, a walkman that hung on the door of the room I shared with my Mom, the tapes that I loved the most that I wore out on that thing. I remember my Grandma telling me that I had come into the room randomly once to ask what the word "discombobulated" meant, and that was because it was on one of my favourite childhood albums. Basically all of my kids music was Christian music because I grew up in a Christian household. So the classics of that era were Psalty the Singing Songbook, GT and the Halo Express, Solomon the Supersonic Salamander, and Jungle Jam. I could only find one of my CDs of Jungle Jam, and I picked out a song that I figured everyone might enjoy. But music was a daily experience, my Aunt's classical collection from Reader's Digest, my Grandma's packed record collection, the several sets of excellent speakers in the house. If nothing else existed, music could have been everything to us, and that has affected my life profoundly. That is a heritage from my Grandma's Dad, she's told me stories about sitting by the radio with him.

I love that song! I know Psalty, but all the others are new to me.. fun!
