Oh, Patricia, I love the Nylons!  I have a couple of their CD's.

My brother was taken back when I told him that I like some kinds of Hip Hop.  Music is great - every genre has something to offer.

The following is from Boots Reily of the Coup out of Berkeley CA, which is near where I live.

BeBop from Dizzy Gillespie is good too.

I've been listening to Japanese, Chinese and Middle Eastern music lately.  I'll see if I can find some I enjoy to post.

The music you posted Patricia seems to have an Eastern, or Asian theme. Great music.

There are so many musical artist available that we unfortunately don't get to hear over commercial airways. 

Randall Smith there probably aren't many people who ever heard, or perhaps a better way to say it is know who Bela Fleck is.  I happened upon him with a documentary I saw where he traveled through various countries in Africa to pick up some local  musical flavor.  He's really good.

I need to get this replacement computer set up with Airfoil so I can again stream music from internet sources throughout my house.

Upgrading computers takes time.

I bought an iPod for listening to streaming radio and music at home, but don't have good enough coverage with the wireless network set up at my house. I'm probably going to have to move some of the wireless transceivers around for better coverage.  I don't drive much so don't need a collection of music such as you have with CD.s.  There are quite a few radio stations I can receive from my car radio, but get kind of tired of them sometimes. I have a low tolerance for commercials and commercial radio announcers. There are (I think three) commercial free radio stations I can get over the airways. The reception quality varies depending on the time of day and other factors that effect transmission.

A couple of years ago I bought a bluetooth audio receiver. It worked ok while I was in the house, but the range didn't allow reception throughout my yard.

I'm a big fan of Bela Fleck. He can do everything from bluegrass to classical. I need a new sound card for my computer!!!

Chris, nice to get your "stuff".

Idaho Spud I didn't expect you or anyone else to like the music I post.

I'm just posting it to start a musical conversation and am glad you joined in.

I've never heard that before.  It's good.
