Is it true young people hate classical music???
There's a discussion on this in A Young Person's Guide to Classical Music
Where? I can't find this.

Anyway, you might as well ask "Is it true old people are bald/grey/cantankerous/post-menopausal...???"

I realize that this in anecdotal.
I am seventy-five and sixty years ago most of my teenage contemporaries hated classical music.
I realise that this is also anecdotal.
I am 63 and 48 years ago, I had no idea what most of my teenage contemporaries thought about classical music. I guess I assumed they thought, like me, that while Rock was king, CM had its place...at least in TV themes, film music, Bugs Bunny cartoons...not the rubbish bin. "Hate" didn't figure.
