We've got Sirius, so when the kids are sleeping we often listen to the comedy channels.

As soon as one of them wakes up, off goes the comedy channel (so they don't learn any new words) and in goes a Spiderman DVD. yeah.

But... my music of choice is jazz, bossa nova, that sort of stuff. Dave Brubeck, Charlie Byrd, Chet Baker. Also like more modern downtempo type of stuff like Nicola Conte (latin influences) YouTube - Costa Rica Nicola Conte

Love the 60s latin contributions to the jazz scene:

YouTube - Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 - Mas Que Nada

YouTube - Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass -- Tijuana Taxi

YouTube - "Stan Getz & Astrud Gilberto - The Girl from Ipanema"

Not to mention a certain someone's contribution to bossa nova:

YouTube - Bossa Nova Baby

XM radio for sure or AM

On XM:
channel 164 : The old time radio shows like "The Hornet", Lone ranger, gunsmoke, Suspense Theater, Pallidin, Fiber Magee & Molly,ETC ETC ETC..
OR channell 4 for the 40's and 5 for the 50's and a little bit of 6 for some 60's.
And then there is channel 13 for Willies Place that must be on a push button.


On AM radio, as stated previously, catch all the local stations, Amazing what is out there. A lot of local info and sounds.

And in the near future the merger between XM and Serious will happen.
I hope that brings both sets of customers MORE selections and NOT FEWER.
We will see.

Rivet I cant believe I just found this thread!

The Blues Brothers

Dire Straits first and foremost, Mark Knofler can be just as smooth, bright, and sparkling as a mountain stream. Not many guitar players have recorded an album with Chet Atkins. Speaking of same, Chester and Lester is a great album. They just turned on the mikes and the old farts, (Chester) Chet Atkins and (Lester) Less Paul (Inventor of the electric guitar, multi-track recording, and so much more) do what they do best.

Stevie Ray Vaughan, Pink Floyd, Allan Parson’s Project, Buffet, Van Morrison.

Blues, too many to mention. B.B. really is the King! Especially live.

The Band, Music from Big Pink is an outstanding album. From the Band, Robbie Robertson and Levon Helm (Another Arkansas “boy”).

Clapton, Billy Joel, It’s a Beautiful Day, Jefferson Airplane/Starship, Elton John (The work with Bernie Taupin was great), and much of the British invasion (Bring out the VOXes), including Cream.

Anything with the Austin Sound! Delbert, Willie, Asleep at the Wheel (Texas Swing, you just can’t beat it!). I like living in Little Rock, but I still miss Austin.

These days I find myself listening to classical. I appreciate the music very much, but the best part is I don’t have to listen to on-air “personalities.”

I guess I need to get sat radio.

What a good thread, Gene.

We listen to just about anything good, from Aerosmith to ZZ Top - just NOT Hip-Hop! Classical, Country, Jazz, Blues, Celtic, Rock, Pop, Zydeco, Folk, etc. I've been told that we have the most ecclectic collection of CD's ever.

Nothing like cruising down some lonesome interstate with all the windows open singing along with Joe Cocker - Feelin' Alright, or Elton John - Take me to the Pilot, or the Stones - Sympathy for the Devil or Rod Stewart - Maggie May!

Other favorite traveling songs - 500 Miles (Proclaimers), El Paso (Marty Robbins), Werewolves ofLondon (Zevon), I Love LA (Randy Newman), Bang in the Drum All Day (Todd Rundgren).

I LOVE watching on-coming traffic and occasionally seeing some nut (liek me) sining along - loudly!

Happy Trails!

My musical tastes run up and down the board with the exception of hip/hop and rap. Lately I've been getting acquainted with J.J. Cale, how'd I miss him in my younger days. I knew he wrote songs that EC recorded but he is so much better than those few songs. Also been listening to a latin instrumental guitarist I heard at the Hotel Del about a week ago called Tony Lasley. Good stuff. Need to find more of his music.

This is a great thread.

Grateful Dead

for some reason, the Dead seem to help pass the miles. I also like the Jazz station on XM. Finally, there is Deep TRacks, channel 40. The play stuff that was on WNEW ,(102.7) NY city in the early 70's when i was a little kid.

Radio stations used to play entire albums. I think the DJ's had to go to the head or eat dinner or... who knows what else.

Hey! WNEW RULED THE AIRWAVES IN NY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What even happened to Roscoe and Allison Steele (the night bird?)

Many of the WNEW jocks from that era can be found on Sirius now. Sort of brings me right back to the NYC area of the late 60's early 70's!

Pretty much can agree with most of what's been said thus far... each artist brings back a memory or two and get's my toe tappin'. Hard to pick a favorite.

But, there's just something about barreling down the highway with Allman Brothers cranked up...

'Course... now that I think about it, Traveling Wilburys' got the groove, too... and gettin' funky with The Meters... then there's The Band and... ahh jeeze, it's all good...
