So, I am trying to get my mind off that, and my mind naturally wanders to the topic of music. I love music. Listening to music is one of my favorite ways to while away a day. I think I can safely say that I have a very wide ranging taste in music. I could paraphrase Donny and Marie Osmond and say that I'm a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll, a little bit disco, a little bit heavy metal, a little bit polka, a little bit hair band, a little bit dance music, and so on and so on. My friend, Mike, thinks I have a very eclectic taste. I just think that there's a wide array of good music out there, and it can be found in every genre you care to listen to, so I listen to a lot of different genres.
I should probably clarify that and say that I have listened to a lot of different genres. Nowadays, I have pared down what I listen to quite drastically. That probably is because I have children, and some of the music from my past probably wouldn't be totally appropriate for the kids to hear. Let's just say that we don't listen to Rage Against the Machine in the house any more.
Nowadays, we listen to a lot of top-40 radio stations in the car. That is something I never used to do, but since getting married and having kids, I have become a fan. Here in the Twin Cities, there are several radio stations that I switch between when driving around with kids in the car. I usually start at KS-95, then go to KDWB, then try K-TWIN, and finally go to JACK-FM. JACK plays a lot of songs from my youth as well, so that can be a fun station.
