1-Apr-2011 No Radio

Friday 1 April 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I spend quite a bit of time in my car and about a month ago banned myself from listening to the radio. why ? its shite.

I have six stations tuned in and spend my time flicking from one to the other to find some decent music to listen to. I hate the chatter and silly little jokes and ads. But most of the music is inane teeny-bop shite or ac/dc, midnight oil etc. Now much as I love those bands, they only play the same few songs over and over and over ad nauseum and they totally miss out on the other 120million decent bands out there.

Of course Triple J and FBI Radio are pretty darned good, but I still don’t feel fulfilled. So instead I have been listening to my ipod (I have a large record collection that I have paid for) and lots of podcasts – there are just so many things out there. On my playlist today is stuff from :

However I think I now have a much broader range of tastes. Its a bit like watching TV – most of it is dross, you just have to find the good nuggets.

I also spend quite a lot of time on the train, but I don’t listen to music there – just read books – lots of ’em – , magazines (less these days),  or articles/ebooks from the internet.
