No music today, Not!

Well not any golden oldies, yet.

But there is always music in my life.
Not that I play, someday.
The radio has been a good companion.

Did you hear that this guy some might know is starting a foundation to promote music education for children?

And of course, I think you would agree, Paul knows something about music.

Growing up in working-class Liverpool, England, in the 1950s, he remembers, "we had a music class kind of once a week, but the guy used to just put on a record and leave us alone with the record. So I'm afraid that didn't do an awful lot. We turned it down and told jokes."

No wonder, then, that the former Beatle, who is in the thick of a sold-out U.S. tour, is promoting music education in schools. On Tuesday he kicks off a national campaign for Music Lives, his non-profit foundation.

At concert dates and online through, he is raising money by selling $40 pewter bracelets engraved with his signature. The entire $40 goes to children, McCartney says, in many cases covering the entire cost of putting a musical instrument into the hands of a child who would not otherwise be able to afford it.

Now that is a good cause!

Way to go, Paul!
