The Reluctant Therapist: Stop talking - I can’t hear the music

What is the polite and appropriate way to enjoy live music, or any live performance?  It seems that more and more people have become so distracted by taking selfies, recording their every experience and sharing every thought - that they’ve forgotten, or lost, the art of public behavior. Tune in Tuesday at two in the afternoon for a conversation with Elizabeth Barrett, the Reluctant Therapist and her guests, KCBX Morning Cup host, Neal Losey, and Nick Larson of San Luis Obispo band Próxima Parada about the increase in people talking, interacting and generally disrupting live music at the expense of others enjoyment of the experience. If we are attending a public event is there an expectation for audience behavior?

Elizabeth Barrett is a wife, mother, licensed marriage-family therapist, educator, eavesdropper, emotion worker, and mental health consultant. She uses all of these skills to address the subjects that we all struggle with in this conversation with the Reluctant Therapist.
Neal started his radio career at Cal Poly SLO's KCPR in 1989. He started volunteering at KCBX in 1993, spinning discs every Saturday night on the Night Train, a show he still does today. In 1997 he joined the full-time staff of KCBX as the Music Director and the host of the Morning Cup. Neal has also worked for multiple commercial radio stations over the last 25 years, including K-Otter, K-Bear and The Beach. He has worked at record stores, promoted concerts, written music columns and published his own music magazine over the years. Neal loves sharing music any way he can, and always has, since his early days of taking James Brown 45s to his 2nd grade class for "Show and Tell."
