  1. I know local artists aren’t going to like this but I don’t really care for today’s local music. The only local music I care to listen to are the really talented groups like The Kasuals, Johnny Sablan, Flora Baza Quan and J.D. Crutch. Listening to the children of these individuals try and sing their parents hit songs just doesn’t compare to the originals. It’s kind of like watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory instead of Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. Cheap imitation if you ask me.
