Would love to. The tracklists you post do give me ideas to explore.  I know you've posted a link before and if I scrolled back some pages I'm sure I'd find it. But could you tell me again?

Semi-on-topic, if you have an active SiriusXM car subscription, the browser and mobile app streaming service is now included. Nice to have the car-only restriction lifted without paying anything extra. They also have a lot of additional channels on the streaming side.

Are you including Bowie's "Starman"? It's so much better than "Space Oddity" IMO. I also would hope you're including "Major Tom (Coming Home)" by Peter Schilling.

the bastards took my favorite channel and turned it into a phish channel and moved mine to streaming only.

Then they brought it back to the receiver but it's a higher channel # that most hardware can't reach.

It's nice that the streaming appears to be included now but I hate having to set that up in the car and use my battery to get the channel.

An added bug is when I get in my car at home I'm still connected to my home wifi and that screws up as I get further away.

Nope, something different from Bowie.     And not including Peter Schilling, but if it was a 3 hour show I probably would.  There are an awful lot of Moon/Space songs out there. 

 

I will post the playlist after it airs.

I have never understood why some people want to judge others people for their music taste, beyond high school age.   (In High School, you have clicks and conform to what your click does, even if you're a nerd like me).   Hey I don't like corporate country,  but that's cool if you do.   Music is one of the most subjective things ever - and after high school age everybody's taste in music is unique.    In radio they do music testing, usually in some kind of conference room, where they play hooks of a song and get people to say whether they like it, hate it, are indifferent or even know it and I have never felt that way of testing was all that accurate.   If you really want to know a person's music taste - ask them if they can print out what's on their phone or mp3 player.   You'd be stunned at the range of styles people listen to.

I can confidently say that if a person exclusively (not casually) listens to pop country, they aren't likely to have a lot of other similar interests to me. 

Certain genres of music tend to coincide with a certain lifestyle. People who love pop country tend to go to church, like shooting guns/hunting/fishing, say things like "darn tootin", line dancing, and so forth. Will I judge them. Yes. Are many of them great people? Of course. They just tend to be people I don't have a lot in common with and don't care to spend a lot of time with. 

I don't see what the big deal is.

HaHa. aside from the cultural issues, I would be curious if anyone has ever surveyed to see which genres are associated with having the narrowest musical tastes. I like a lot of things, but there are probably still as many forms I won't listen to as things I will.

The term I use when comes to defining taste is pedestrian.  Some people don’t care to get too deep into their entertainment.  They watch Big Bang theory. Modern family. Listen to pop country.  Watch America’s got talent. Basically whatever is put in front of them. They won’t go digging around. They’ll eat at Wahlbergers or Bubba Gump shrimp because that’s what the hotel brochure told them to.  They are the easiest to market to.  Nothing wrong with it if course 

music and comedy are so subjective and I don’t see a clear line either

based on some of my other likes I should really be into Wilco   I have tried  it’s not bad but it doesn’t move me

If you've not checked out Mike Masse on YouTube, you're missing a fantastic artist. His version is brilliant. His videos are some serious wormholes. We bought his album of covers and listen to it often while driving.

 

 

He's awesome.

I agree, this guy is fantastic. Go listen to his take on more than a feeling by Boston....I've never heard anyone else hit those notes.

I used to like Wilco - a lot, but Jeff Tweedy releases an awful lot of music and an awful lot of it sounds the same.    I am burned out on Wilco.      - Which is unsuaul since they don't get a ton of airplay (mainstream).

.........and I despise Jack Johnson's music.  Not because I think he's a bad guy,  in fact I think he's probably a really good guy.   But his music is boring and it all sounds the same to me. 

 

And I am supposed to like Bon Iver, but again - it's boring.    You can do slow core, or softer music without being dull or depressing.  Lisa Hannigan figured it out.

I’m jacked because I get to see Tedeschi Trucks on Tuesday along with blackberry smoke and shovels with rope.  For $120 I get 8th row to a two hour jam with the best guitarist under the age of 70 ot whatever and 2 decent openers.    More excited about shovels with rope.

Lori McKenna has a great album worth checking out called The Bird and the Rifle. One of my favorite cuts off the album.

Did you/have you listened to the rest of the Public Service Broadcasting album "The Race for Space?"   The songs on the Russian side of things are quite good music.   "Korolev" is very interesting.

I really like Lula Wiles. One of many, many indie-country/bluegrass/folky artists I have discovered in recent years.

So I had never heard of Detroit's Stef Chura until an hour ago when I read a positive write-up about her in Vancouver's entertainment weekly.  Sounds like the type of music I might like. Wouldn't you know it, on Wednesday and Thursday nights she played shows in Vancouver in a tiny venue. Oh well, will listen to her debut Messes this weekend and, if I like it, will then listen to this year's Midnight.
