    A Musical Day In The Life…

    Post By:

    Anyone who knows me knows that I am a pretty fanatical music lover. Not really the kind that has opinions on what you should listen to, but the kind who always has his headphones on. So, let’s take a look at a day in the life of me, and see what we can hear…

    6:45 AM: I get up to the sound of ringing bells.

    7:30 AM: I get into my car to drive to work. Most days, I’ll crank my stereo, but I’m not always in the mood for loud music this early. I usually enjoy some rock, jazz or r&b music, but not always. Today, I was listening to Sly and the Family Stone on the way to work.

    8:00 AM: I arrive at work. Before I even set my computer up, I will pull out my iPod or iPhone.

    8:15 AM: I have settled in to work, and have my music going. My taste varies quite a bit, but usually it will be some sort of jazz or rock. I’ll listen to music pretty much all morning. This morning, I enjoyed some Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix and Charles Mingus.

    1:00 PM: I usually take my lunch around now. Most of the time, I turn the music off, then venture out into the web.

    2:00 PM: Back from lunch, and sometimes back to my music. I don’t always listen to music in the afternoon, and today was one of those days. Had a lot of reading to do, so I cut back on auditory stimulation…

    5:00 PM: Off work, and driving home. Most of the time, I’ll just keep listening to whatever I have playing in the car. I continued listening to Sly and The Family Stone.

    5:30 PM: I get home. When I am cooking dinner, I will put on a record. Usually I’ll play it through once or twice. Tonight was Thelonous Monk.

    8:00 PM: Dinner is done and I usually get back to work. In addition to my day job, and this website, I have several others that I own and work on. Many times, I just open up Pandora radio on my iPhone, connect it to my stereo, and listen to whatever. Lately, I have been enjoying the funk radio station on Pandora.

    10:30 PM: I am usually getting ready for bed around now. I have been known to listen to music before bed, but the habit has sort of died off lately. I remember when I was in high school, I really enjoyed listening to the Doors before bed, although I do have a “Night time” playlist on my iPod that I occasionally listen to.

    So, there you have it. A musical day in the life of me.

      I have been listening to a lot of vinyl lately..I have been acquiring old vinyl from various sources.

      Lately have been listening to really old James Brown records and classic vinyl from the 50’s and early 60’s.

      I listen to some progressive rock on progulus

      I just found your site and I will be around often, I really like it.
