I listen to a lot of NPR talk radio. Radio Lab, Brian Lehrer, the Leonard Lopate Show, All Things Considered, Soundcheck, and Fresh Air are my favorites.

As far as music goes I'm a big fan of anything by Jordi Savall and at the moment I'm obsessed with the album Du temps & de l'instant. It's ancient music (before the 1600's) but for some reason it sounds extremely modern to me and I recommend it highly.

We recently downloaded a few seasons of a British series, Jonathan Creek, which uses Dans Macabre as its theme. So, I've been listening to a lot of Saint Saens lately. Then the usual eclectic mix of opera, jazz, "classical," show tunes, international, swing, oldies, you name it.

I bought a George Jones CD once, but not on purpose. I was labeled as Stevie Ray Vaughan. I was playing it in my car and thinking what the **** happened to SRV. Wife laughed and said that's George Jones.

Stepson liked it. He was just 6 at the time. So I played it every once in a while. Ended up kinda liking it.

Hey BDL, you've been a stranger.

I can't seem to get the songs "Love Hurts" by Incubus and "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" by Beyonce out of my head.

Other than that, a metal-ish band called He Is Legend, a lot of early 90's rap, and (surprisingly) some 60's jazz. I just picked up first vinyl pressings of John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" and Miles Davis' "Bitches Brew" at the local jazz/funk record store. They cost a pretty penny, but it was well worth it. Even if the economy goes down without a fight, I will always have enough extra money for three things: Food, cigarettes, and music.

Oh man I remember those days about 10 years ago. I don't miss them at all. It was a few years later that my kids were using the talking Barney doll as a soccer ball and when they kicked him he'd say "please hug me again" Then they'd say "okay, Barney", kick him again and laugh. Cracked me up. :lol:

I might have gotten that started . .

You've created monsters OregonYeti, monsters. That is pretty great though, I can admit to that.

Haven't had the time to listen to much music lately, other than some East Village Opera Company, Trans Siberian Orchestra, and Tool in the car driving to school and work. Soon though, as soon as stuff starts to settle down some.

Given what is happening here in the States on the 20th, I've really liked Van Morrison's Brand New Day lately.

Last ime I bought a CD was about 4 years ago, and I still can't figure out why my kids need a compuker to listen to CD's or to transfer said music from CDs to those mini-walkman thingees. Why involve a compuker with music? Apple/Microsoft conspiracy....

Daughter got me some music store gift certificates for Christmas. Gave her a hard time about the Store --HMV. Told her I didn't want to go to some gay HIV clinic, HUH?!!! Yeah, well with all this pink background and pink H's and V's and stuff it must be a Aids clinic, right? Oh she gets so cute and her face gets so red when she's mad!!!!

OD'd and got the last 2 Mark Knopfler albums, Kill to get Crimson, and Shang-ri-la. Nice stuff. Took me a while to get it, but really cracked up first time I heard "Boom, like that", song was an ode to Ray Kroc, well, kinda/sorta... Love that guy--Knopfler that is....

Having a lot of time sitting at home waiting for the phone to ring, gives me time to go through my music library of 116,964 files.

Cooking at home, drinking beer and listening to Bjork seems to do it for me at the moment. Am also listening to NINs The Slip in preparation for the live show later in Feb. Maybe i'll get to chat to Trent Reznor again.

Oh yeah, according to the computer, it will play music files for about 111 days without repeating a song.

Today: Little Feat - Waiting for Columbus (live).
*They played here at the casino a few years ago, and I picked up this autographed disc at that time.
I still consider that the best show we've had.
Amazing.

Been having a hard time convincing myself to take Chickenfoot out of the disc player lately.
Good rock and roll.

Bob Dylan is playing tonight in town, so the local community radio station [ krcl.org ] has been doing a lot of Dylan songs. Gee, that reminds me I need to update utahblues.org with the latest schedule before tonight's blues show.

John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk, Wayne Shorter... Yeah, I may only be 24, but I love 60's avant-garde jazz. I just picked up a first pressing of Coltrane's "Sun Ship" on vinyl. I'm torn... Do I play it or do I lock it away? Lol.

If it has already been opened and played before, I'd play it one more time to record before locking it away.

I'd say play it. Vinyl just doesn't seem to have the value it once did.

Personally I have been doing the wedding thing long enough that I don't have to listen to the songs we're doing anymore. So I am breaking out the old tunes in anticipation of the "summer band". That means basically fast guitar driven music from the 70's and 80's. A little before and a little after that too! :peace:
