Adventures in a Perambulator

The other day I purchased a cassette walkman from Amazon. I still have cassettes and I do have a CD walkman, so I figured I'd like to have a cassette walkman to listen to instead of relying on my cassette/CD boombox to listen to cassettes. I love the walkman, however, the walkman doesn't have a rewind button. One of my coworkers said it was probably because after rewinding so many times, cassettes can wear out. Sadly, I have to rewind cassettes on the boombox.

The cassette walkman also has a radio. I haven't listened to the radio in so long. I love WMMR, a local rock station, but this afternoon I wanted to listen to something more relaxing at work. I also love classical music and I remember listening to 91.1 (around that) in middle and high schools. 91.1 is the classical channel and I am glad the channel still exists. I spent all afternoon listening to classical music. One of the songs I loved was called Adventures in a Perambulator by John Alden Carpenter. I ended up buying the CD on iTunes. I want to share the song with you all.

Apparently, Carpenter also wrote lullabies, I might have to check them out tomorrow. Yes, classical music is one of my guilty pleasures. It's so relaxing.


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I enjoyed this track! It is surely beneficial to our mental health (and physical health since the two are connected) to occasionally cleanse the palate with relaxing, soothing, calming, inspiring classical music. One dose per day would probably work wonders for the overall mood of the country.

    Thank you very much for presenting this, dear friend Jessica, and happy listening this weekend!

    1. Hi Shady!

      You're very right! I spent the entire afternoon listening to classical music while I worked and I actually felt better. I'll be listening today as well.

      I really want to see if I can still buy classical cassettes. I have classical CDs and my mom still has a dubber, so I guess if worse comes to worse I could always dub a classical cassette (just have to figure out how). I've always loved classical music and I think it would be beneficial to the country now.

      Thanks, Shady! Happy listening this weekend as well, dear friend!
