What Do You Like To Hear on Your Sound Systems?12/27/17
My preferences are old Rock and Folk, from Dylan to Grateful Dead. Head and Heart and Bob Weir are both in heavy rotation among newer music. ITunes on an older receiver and pair of 12" two-ways in cabinets of my construction.
Satellite radio has kept me sane....Classic rock, deep tracks, blue grass, and especially the outlaw country. All the stuff NOT on the public radio.
I too like the dead.
But mostly I like political talk shows (8^(l)
Mostly Jazz from the 1950's to the early 1960's.
I turn up some Motörhead and stuff gets done. Sean and Tucker just make my blood boil so I’m not so well rounded;(
Catholic tastes or otherwise you are as lefty as lefty can be.
BTW Tucker is good. Hannity not so much.
These guys are selling stuff by creating out rage not truth.
Economics is a boring subject if it creates out rage it is Not economics.
Tim if you are so eclectic read a book on the subject. Two easy and interesting reads are Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell or Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlit
I forbid Rush L in the shop many years ago, for obvious reasons. I was accused of censorship, then the offender left our employ. I know of two other instances where Rush fans were fired for their newly developed bad attitudes.
Then I forbid "Bob and Tom" for all the bad fart jokes. And the 'enhancement' adds and the loan adds. Then I banned all talk, even NPR. I observed people stop and listen. Slave driver I am, it I saw it had their full attention when they needed to be thinking.
While I like some loud Rock, mostly as a backdrop to highly physical shop work, I will turn it all off of or limit it to some jazzy stuff when doing full scale drawings and layout sticks. I'll listen to NPR when cleaning, or overhauling, or non billable things. Some days, it is like a monastery.
Easy, the bookkeeper buzzing me from the office saying the mailman dropped off the mail and there are checks as well as bills!
We really like country western.
Particularly the: "I'm more patriotic than you!" genre.
Lately I've been playing a lot of Joe Rogan Experience podcast or Dan Carlin Hardcore History. For those times it feels like I've heard every rock song I like too many times.
Imus and Bill Monroe.
Classical and classical-like music, For some reason, some of the the modern music I like (which I compare to classical) is labeled as "new age"... :-(
