WOW!

I used to put my sun roof back and crank up Iron Maiden.

Now I just listen to blue grass. Guess I mellowed.

This topic is a fave of mine!

For those with no concerns about their internet bandwidth useage - 'tune in' to Australia's national youth network - JJJ.

The J's are a government sponspored, non commercial - national radio station. Part of their charter is to play a min required content of LOCAL music. From my understanding of music in the States, there is nothing like this.

http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/listen/
(streaming audio).

This is where the commercial radio stations get their 'original, new' music from - months after it was first heard on the J's. <g>

When I am not listening to great commercial free music on the radio, CD's are played - more on that later.


Stephen Marsh.

Right this second I'm listening to "Echoes" (the public radio music show, not the Pink Floyd song, though that's excellent as well). It comes on a local college radio station every weeknight for two hours.

http://www.echoes.org has streaming versions of the program. They have an excellent range of music you've probably never heard before, along with artist interviews, etc. It's mostly techno/ambient/space/trance/world stuff (you know, the usual )

In my car, this week, Roy Orbison and a bunch of friends playing and singing back-up (Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt, etc.) on some of his biggest hits (Black & White Night), and one of the Johnny Cash compilations. ("We got married in a fever, ... )

OK I had to put classical 'cause new age/country/old rock was not a choice -- LOL

I have the CD palyer going for work (all day) and my down time ---- PS stuff.

I listen to Enya to Pink Flyod to Alice Cooper to Urah Heep to new age to Country -- Yes even the monkees ---LOL


It depends on what I am working on the soft new age/Enya for the more focused, the "old rock" for high energy and country for some good ole fashion toe tapping listening!

OK Monkees when I want to feel 8 years old again!!!!!!!

Usually when I start something I prefer "quiet", that is, until my pooch joins me. From this point I listen to his dogmares.

Margaret wasn't Michael Bolton the chap with the long hair who used to screech a lot? Or have I got somebody else?

You have the right guy - it was the only thing that could drown out the voices in my head when the aluminum hat quit working
