What is Our Kind Of Music?

There is a place out in cyberspace affectionately refered to as “The Shithouse Wire” aka the Todd Snider Listserv. I’m a longtime lurker and sometime poster on “The Shithouse Wire.” Over the years, I kept seeing the acronym OKOM used in posts. I didn’t want to appear stupid by asking what the hell it meant, so I waited until someone else asked. OKOM stands for “Our Kind Of Music.” I have learned a lot from the community of TSW, and they have turned me on to a wealth of great music. I am forever indebted to them for that. I just wish I could meet some more of them! But since I live out here on the left coast – and most of them live back east – it’s not that easy to come face to face with them. I read their posts every day though.

So, in answer to the question – “What is our kind of music?” – it’s Americana, Roots, Folk –  whatever you want to call it. It’s not mainstream but it is popular with people who listen and appreciate lyrics that have real meaning; lyrics that are smart, funny, and deep – all at the same time. Our kind of music is listened to by our kind of people.

Here’s what I intend to post on this Blog:

  • Reviews of CDs that would appeal to the fans of OKOM
  • Interviews of recording artist of OKOM
  • News of upcoming releases of OKOM artists

I’m always open to suggestions too, so feel free to contact me.

Share the love of OKOM!
