While getting where I'm going, I listen to anything upbeat to stay awake, a snoozing senior citizen towing a trailer is not a good thing.
After I get there, I like listening to oldies, classical music, big band, even (gasp) some of the new stuff.

I like just about anything but rap, hip-hop, old whiny country and soprano opera. We have Sirius satellite radio and listen to just about anything but mostly smooth jazz (this from a 40 and a 50-year old!). One of my all-time favorite bands is Steely Dan (absolute musical genius with tongue firmly in cheek at times) and another is Pink Floyd (Learning to Fly and Run Like Hell are two faves). I am also a big fan of 80's eclectic, dance and techno music and when Brad and I got together I had to laugh--his CD collection is mostly smooth jazz like Nelson Rangell, George Benson, etc. and in the middle of all of that is two Black Sabbath albums.

One saxophonist I have really come to appreciate is Candy Dulfer. That beautiful blonde Norwegian woman can lay down some funky sax! She is very talented.

Fun topic, thanks!

Sirius Satellite Radio...............

..................haven't turned it off in the 5+ years that I have been a lifetime subscriber! So much great music.....especially when doing the FL to OR drive and back each year.

Blues, Jazz, Classic Rock, comedy, some oldies and a little new electronic thrown into the mix. Sometimes I'll just search 'till something good sounding comes up and I'll leave it there for a while. ''Nothing but time while on the road. ......and GREAT TUNES!!!!!!!

Dave and I like to listen to books on CD from the Library. We really enjoy a good mystery. We listen a while, then switch to some of the local talk radio shows. We also listen to blues CDs- BB King is great! and some oldies. Sometimes, I even get to listen to country!

Route 66 memories

This all brings to mind my several trips from Chicago to Riverside, Calif. in the 50's and early 60's. Listening to the AM radio (all that was available) across the country. The hiss and static, the fading in and out, Holy Roller shows that always semed to blast out, when all else failed, and the mega watt XERF coming is strong with Wolf Man Jack in Del Rio, Texas, after the sun was down. (By the way, you always traveled the desert part of the trip at night in an un-air conditioned car.) Beach Boys would have been nice, but can you really beat Hank Williams belting out a tune in the darkness, the ads for the ever present Snake Farm, Patented Medicines and Dr. Brinkleys' Goat implants.
Yes Sir! AM radio for me, 'specially with Banjo, Guitar and Mandolin music.

I have to agree with Melody Ranch

I like the way AM radio sounds. Especially when there is a storm in the distance. To me it's like a time machine, bringing me back to the way it was back when. But this is the real world, and to be honest, I listen to whatever my daughter brings on her IPOD. She usually sings along and I get LIVE music!!!!!! ( proud father syndrome)

Nothing beats LIVE music.

Sometimes we all enjoy a baseball or a football game. On AM, of course. Sirius works too.

I also enjoy a variety of music including some jazz, classic rock, along with 50's/60's. Jean Luc-Ponty has been streaming out my speakers lately. There's also Southern Culture on the Skids, as much Roy Orbison as I can find, Steely Dan/Donald Fagan, Allman Brothers, the Band, Dylan of course, and such crazy stuff as Cherry Poppin' Daddies and Big Bad VooDoo Daddy. A couple of my favorites are Eric Clapton and Van Morrison.

My iPod's always packed so I'm ready to travel.

"I like the way AM radio sounds. . ." I admit to being hooked on XM (others are the same with Sirius), but I agree that tuning in to the AM stations as you cross the country is akin to seeking out the local cafe for lunch in those little towns along the blue highways. We've lost so much local color and sense of Americana with our easy radio systems and our chain restaurants that it's purely refreshing to see and taste what is still unique to an area as we drive through. I remember driving across the Crow Reservation along the Wind River with the local tribal radio playing sublime Indian Flutes-haunting and beautiful. Wouldn't have found that on my XM! ~G
