Hi Annie
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09am doctorjazz:

This is back when country could have a lot of blues, even jazz mixed in unselfconsciously...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10am annie:

this music is definitely doing these headphones justice.
Avatar 9:10am Bob Brainen:

Mornin' bb & group!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13am doctorjazz:

@Annie-you prefer headphones, or just trying not to disturb (just nosey...)
  9:15am Jeff:

Howlin' Wolf loved Jimmie Rodgers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 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...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 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.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am annie:

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
