OKEECHOBEE – The announcement of the 2020 Okeechobee Music Festival lineup had some older community members responding that they weren’t familiar with the music of many of the performers.
In the age of Woodstock, most people were exposed to new bands and performers when they heard a song on the radio. By the 1980s, MTV was all the rage with viewers discovering new bands by watching their videos on television. Today much of the new music is online. Instead of searching the radio channel for a tune they like, a driver connects their smart phone or music storage device to the car; or the driver might ask Siri or Google to find a particular song.
