Grew up on Casey Kasem
First album purchase was the Saturday Night Fever sound track
Spent high school/college listening to Rock/Metal AND New Wave/Post Punk
Brief Grunge fling in the 90s, then ELECTRONICA, mainly Trip-Hop/Downtempo/Trance/ProgHouse. Electronica remains my favorite genre.
Lately I'm all over the place... World (Reggae, Flamenco, Samba, etc..)NOLA Jazz & Blue Grass get a lot of play plus, and still, a bit of all of the above.
I listen to music less frequently than I used to but to a huge variety of music and a couple of live shows a year.
Pushing 50... Haven't bought a proper album in 20 years but I do splash out for some of my favorite (non-millionaire) artists every now & then. I try to buy as close to the source as possible, preferably from their own website. I don't use streaming sites unless I'm hosting a party & being lazy.
I do hate most of the radio, but more because of commercials & DJs than the music. While my daughter's pop is frequently grating., I even like myself a catchy Katy Perry tune every now and then.
