small gloat

Found at Lowes tonight:
Milwaukee JobSite radio: Price: $99. Yellow tag clearance: $55.
Well built; sturdy; great sound. Replacing my ancient Sony boom box circa 1982, with crappy reception and sound.

I've taken to carrying Jefferson Airplane tapes wherever I go these days. Nothing worth listening to on the radio any more.

There's a couple of good Guy Lombardo collections available on CD. Also the Ozzie Nelson Orchestra with Harriet Hilliard. Oh and I actually own one of the Lombardos. Bought it so I could play Auld Lang Syne (sp?) on New Years. Turns out the rest of the music isn't as square as some would have you believe.     mahalo,     jo4hn

Amen! I have no idea why I bother to buy cars with radios in them anymore.

not true in Tucson. we have an excellent radio station- kxci. it's a community radio station- not owned by some giant soulless corporation. it has actual DJs who choose their own actual music to play. variety all over the place. I regularly hear stuff there that blows me away.     Bridger

Try the low end of the FM dial -- 88-90mHz -- where the college/university stations are. There are some surprises to be found there.

To get the tape or CD player, the radio just 'comes along'.
I'm lucky. I live in the Chicago area; We've got: 1) a full-time classical station (admittedly they have a 3-hour-a-week "aberration" -- THEIR word, not mine -- that can be folk music, and _anything_ else. It's _still_ "good stuff". One week they ran _every_ version of the story of 'Little red Riding Hood" they could lay their hands on. One after the other. Must have been _at_least_ 15 of them. I got laughing so hard I had to pull off the road and park, till they finished. The more memorable ones included: the "Thurber Carnival" version, the Stan Freburg "Dragnet" spoof, and Henry Morgan (*NOT* Harry Morgan of Dragnet/MASH fame) telling it as a classic French Fairy Tale. It didn't help that they did a -marvelous- job of sequencing -- from the straightforward recitations to the more, and *more*, outrageous. 2) a commercial station that runs lots of 'classical jazz'. And a fair bit of 'modern'. On *different* programs, thank goodness. :) 3) another station that runs big-band music at least 20 hours/week. Les Brown, Jimmy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, "The Thundering Herd", 4) Blues -- of course. 5) the 'mostly jazz' station used to have a "torch song" show, too. 6) pop, rock -- undoubtedly, but don't ask me _where_ to find it! :) 7) Country/western -- same story.
And, late nites, I used to listen to "KUSD", the University of South Dakota station at _Vermillion, SD_. Yeah, here in _Chicago_. over the air, -not- a rebroadcast. I had a nice sensitive receiver, and was apparently in 'just the right location'. I could get them fairly regularly, although the neighbors _never_ heard the station. They were good for the "Report from Hoople" (SD) -- hosted by Prof. Schickle (of P.D.Q. Bach fame).

Thanks, Mark.
I'm a talk radio fan and my old Sony just won't pick up anything anymore. The JobSite pulls 'em in strong.
