And Django Reinhardt.

I'm like Claire, in that I don't much care for today's artists. Some of the music is okay, but nothing that makes me want to have a copy of it.
Stephane Grappelli nicely enhanced some of Django's performances-

Thanks for the clarification! It isn't unusual for me to be totally out of touch with music that my nieces and nephews listen to, but of course the English and Irish is probably stuff I've never heard. I, too am a Grapelli/Django fan. I'll never forget walking into a music store after hearing jazz guitar and jazz violin for the first time (as background to a TV show or movie, don't remember). Luckily, with the advent of CDs it was so easy for the store clerk to play several different CDs before I heard the sound I was looking for. Now have a few CDs, each and one together.

We have almost no radio reception here in Galena. Galena is a type of lead ore, and the town is built on it, sometimes quite literally on top of old lead mines. Lead interferes with radio signals. I cannot stand static, it actually confuses me to hear it. I loved it when our new car came with a 90 day sample of Sirius/XM, especially on road trips (we drive to Florida at least once a year to help with family things).

I reckon I would be hard put to name a type of music that is my favorite. Might be easier to talk about the kinds of music I don't like.........




OK, enough of that!
Seriously, I enjoy all forms of music. I 'spect that many of the bands/performers I am fond of are not too familiar with most folks. You may have heard songs by:
Little Feat
Black Oak Arkansas
Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show
Leroy Troy
Doc Watson
ELF
Terry Reid
Johnny Winter
Ry Cooder
Well....this list could go on and on.

Oh, yes, Johnny Winter! Love his stuff.

Also his brother Edgar who had Rick Derringer (originally of the McCoy's of "Sloopy" fame and producer of many artists) and Dan Hartman in one of the evolutions of the Edgar Winter Group.

Love this one!

If I could turn on the kitchen radio, bedroom radio, the stereo and my computer speakers all at the same time, all tuned to different music AND if I were able to separate and differentiate different sounds ALL AT ONCE, I would be in heaven. Audio-Multitasking. Regrettably, I can only listen to one sound at a time.

What I like listening to is 1920's-40's jazz and blues, some big band sounds,
50's standards, not so much early rock, rock a billy though is cool.
Old and new country
70's classic rock, esp the Grateful Dead and related
some ethnic music, Hawaiian music is sometimes both soothing and uplifting.
And then there is just good old classical orchestral music.
The days are not long enough.

My son recently turned me on to this You-tube as one of his faves. I hope you like this one too.
