I don't often listen on-line, Mike, but my stereo in the shop is usually playing Chet Baker or The Modern Jazz Quartet.

I listen to (usually) older blues: McKinley Morganfield, Chester Burnett, Aleck Miller, Sonny Boy Williamson I,  Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, the many Big Bros (Bill Broonzy, Joe Williams, etc), etc.

Odd interest..... Gillian Welch, Pomplamoose, Lindsey Sterling, Allison Krause, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

Even an old 2003 JimL album (once in a rare while).

I like the soft, soothing restrains of " Cradle of Filth"...Unless I`m in a calm mood, Then it`s  Sore Throat`s " Disgrace to the Corpse of Sid " :evil:...You`re kidding..Right??  Any `Floyd...Early Genesis and a little Jimmy Buffett to get my Island Jam on.

I usually have either Classical Minnesota Public Radio or Classical Wyoming streaming in the house and shop.  If Nancy's at home we'll more likely be listening to Aardvark Blues FM or Atlantic Sound Factory.

As a former musician, I've always found it difficult to focus on getting anything done while listening to music.

The issue for me is that as I listen, I wind up mentally going through the exercise of thinking through what I would play on any piece I'm listening to.

This started years ago when I worked 3rd shift in a grocery store.  The Muzak system was rather tinny sounding, and while I stocked shelves, in my head, I'd be inserting bass lines where I couldn't discern one on the floor.  I still do it today.

Now that said, if I'm just putzing about the garage and don't care what I get done, the Texas Playboys are a go-to, but then so are the Sex Pistols, Merle Haggard, NRBQ and the Flamin' Groovies.
