Like many, my love of music started with my parents' collection and the first time I heard my mother's copy of The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour. This week's Five and Alive attempts to see if our parents feel any love for our iPod mixes. La Dispute's Adam Vass sat down with his mom to attempt to close the generational gap. See his results in the replies and discuss what albums/songs are "okay" to put on in the car or at the house for the 'rents.
