@Annie-you prefer headphones, or just trying not to disturb (just nosey...)
Sat. 5/20/17 9:15am Jeff:
Howlin' Wolf loved Jimmie Rodgers!
Sat. 5/20/17 9:21am annie:
well, doc, it's like this: i have two housemates, neither really likes my tstae in music. earlt morning, sitting at my desk in the LR, i keep the sound low, but when they start getting up i put the headphones on to keep my noise to myself...
♥ Sat. 5/20/17 9:25am doctorjazz:
That makes sense-have to use headphones for shows like Destination Out on Sunday Morning/Drummer Stream, drives the family away (not always such a bad thing...). They do like small exposures, especially my daughters, so they can know what to play for friends to demonstrate what nutty stuff their dad listens to.

i used to play fmu at the country store i worked at..it wasn't top 40 and local news; the faces of the customers walking in... priceless! and not a franchise CS, a small place in upstate ny near the hudson
