Kitchen Music, Episode 2 Revenge of the Bagpipes - Page 2

post #31 of 51
mostly pink floyd and the rolling stones lately. pfunk is the best motivator though. id listen to them more often at work if i wasnt worried someone would see me dancing around the kitchen while listening to it...

I am in culinary school, and I had an instructor tell me once that he doesn't allow music, humming, or singing in his kitchen, and that he has never been in a kitchen where music was allowed EVER. But there is music where I work now, as well as the last place, and most people in my class agreed.

Anyway, we mostly just have the radio on to whatever station.

It can be just about anything, except Hip Hop or C&W.....my apologies to fans. A true Canadian though.....if it is a radio station....it's got to be CBC, and if a CD, I do enjoy our Canadian talent: Jann Arden, Sarah Maclachan

Classical music for prep until I get bored then it goes to the 80's pop-rock radio station. It drives the staff nuts, especially when I start to moonwalk:lol: For the rush we listen to Heavier stuff: Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Beasties, Sabbath, etc.

Also in reference to the starting post: I LIKE bagpipe music.:smoking:

Neil Young, Grateful Dead, most classic rock, especially Southern Classic rock. When I'm in a bad mood, Bowling for Soup. We also listen to alot of todays alternative. When I need the blood pumping, The Clash or the Ramones usually gets me going.

For a few weeks, the only thing I would put on was this kick *** Phish show that started with 2001. Nowadays, I've been listening to Stop Making Sense and endless Beatles.

It's funny when I find something obscure in the cd player, like Kenny Rogers Christmas or something. I know that it's mainly Mexicans who work in this kitchen and I find that humorous! Where do these cds come from?

Phish is another one we listened to quite a bit. I saw Trey open for the Stones here in C'ville.

I used to make sausage to classical -- somehow it just worked LOL Vivaldi rocks during prep! But the guy that took over for me after my shift listened to "hard rock," and bitched because he had to change the station every time he came in -- I was quite happy when he, without warning, didn't show up one night. No more bitching, and I was offered both shifts and full control of the sausage production and radio ;)

I think music CAN affect what you make. We were listening to Phish yesterday over lunch. The next thing we are having a discussion on deep-fried Tofurducken, with a gluten-free dressing.....:p

Sure a little late here to post (after-all I just joined what, 2 days ago). :D
But when I worked at the Ramada Airport Inn, it was a mix between Modern Rock (:D) on one station or Rap / Hip-Hop (:mad:) on another station. Although I do LOATH Rap/Hip-Hop all so much!! It's the kind of non-sense talk, attempted singing that slows my production down and puts me into a P.O.'ed mood. (And no one likes me when I'm P.O.'ed!) It was usually a constant battle between the radio stations. Once the other Chef left the room, the radio became mine and on came the Modern Rock music. But once I left the room...ERR!:mad: Maybe that's why I took such long breaks?:lol: Who knows? But oh-well! Long deserved breaks! When I'm in the car on my way home or falling asleep, it's definately Beethoven and pals. Good stuff actually...:smoking:

P.S. - EMO SUCKS! (Down w/ Fall down Boy and all their pretty little boyfriends!):mad:
P.P.S. - Classic 80's Rock is still one of the best things to have ever happen to this country (America). ROCK-ON!:D

Bagpipes make great kindling for accordion fires.

Sorry guys, but Bagpipe music does ROCK!!!!! I am pleasantly surprised by the number of people who listen to Classical (as in Beethoven, not Classic Rock). I have always enjoyed changing it up in the kitchens I worked in, that allowed music. From World Music to Bluegrass, to hip-hop (as little as I can get away with, hate the stuff personally) to a lot of industrial, techno and ebm stuff. And of course, can't forget the mexican music for the amigos.

Radio La Que Buena - 105.1 WOJO-FM

The same dozen Mexican pop songs played over and over and over.

When should I arrive?

Bubba, I *play* the pipes. Where did you say you were cooking again? :roll: And would you like a solo or should we just bring the whole band (16 pipers, 3 side drummers (snares, for the normal folk), 2 tenor drummers and a bass).

Saint Paul, Minnesota; unfortunately for me, it'd be a bit of a commute for you, let alone the other 21. I'd settle for the solo, though.
