 I have been listening to manyof my old favorites;

        Mainly rock and country from the sixties with a wee bit of "Hooked on Classics" thrown in. Plus a lot of film music concerning things like themes from "20,000 leagues Under the Sea"

      My tastes are all over the place. I like a lot of the themes from "Victory at Sea" and such as well.  Movie themes like "Tora,Tora,Tora" and "Titanic" the Movie!

More Peterson this morning, interview with reporter Miranda Devine:

though, I'm actually working, not building.

I test software for a living, so I listen to the radio, podcasts, music, etc, as I run applications.

Jordan Peterson's Biblical Series podcasts, episode 12.  This first series looks at the Book of Exodus, and the panel he has gathered to discuss is made up of some very insightful authors and scholars.

Yesterday I had Van Halen's "Right Now" stuck in my head all day at work:

Van Halen - Right Now (1991 Video) - YouTube

Which was infinitely better than the other day when I had "The Crayon Song Gets Ruined" in my head:

The Crayon Song Gets Ruined - YouTube

"I once ate a bug that was colored green,

but the ER said it was a poisonous thing.

I guess that's why I threw up green,

and inside that green there were chunks of green.

Hooray!"

I find that bench music depends on what random whim I'm feeling at the time.  I listen to just about any genre of music, but typical bench music includes:

Steely Dan or Pink Floyd.  Sometimes it's older stuff from student days, such as Drivin' and Cryin'.  Or during the summer months, I often lean toward stuff like Texas Tornados or Stevie Ray Vaughan, stuff I used to listen to at BBQs back home.  I also like what my wife calls "lounge music," usually Diana Krall or Bossa Nova stuff like João Gilberto or Stan Getz.  But whatever it is, it's usually full albums start-to-finish, since often it's how they were intended to be enjoyed...back before "streaming" was an option!

I think I was a freshman in HS.  I went for Marshall Tucker because I was into southern rock but Journey and The Cars blew me away.  Thin Lizzy was great as well.  Great show. 

cheap and included admission to the fair!

Thanks,

AW Man!  What a great performance to go to for your first concert.  I was a junior in high school that year.

Can't say that I have ever heard of the Despondent Astronauts.

Thanks for posting the links, PFJN2.

Interesting music. Reminded me of early Talking Heads or maybe DEVO.

Hi,

They were a small local band in the DC area a couple decades ago that one of my college classmates was in.  Knowing him I wouldn't be surprised if they were a little bit influenced by the Talking Heads, Devo, and the Violent Femess, etc

Here's a great one I tumbled to just yesterday, that may be of special interest to this group.

Reading the obit for British actor Leslie Phillips, who passed away just the other day after a long and productive career, I saw that in addition to his roles in the "Carry On" films and the more recent Harry Potter franchise, he also starred in a long-running BBC radio comedy called "The Navy Lark."

Think "McHale's Navy," with (for you British comedy afficianados) a little  "Dad's Army" thrown in...set in the late-'50s Royal Navy -- "on a tiny island just beyond the view of HMNB Portsmouth...." There's the usual (and predictable) cast of characters, centering around the largely-clueless officers and crew of HM frigate Troutbridge. It boasts an excellent ensemble including future 'Dr. Who' Jon Pertwee, "Last of the Summer Wine's" Michael Bates, and Ronnie Barker of "The Two Ronnies."

Several hundred* half-hour episodes may be found streaming or for download (completely free, with no sign-up or registration required) on one of my favorite sources for old audio, RadioEchoes.

It's not exactly ground-breaking stuff: the same old familiar comedic situations and...shall we say...venerable jokes...but it's all done with that uniquely dry and clever British wit. I'm already about a dozen episodes in, and they're just a hoot.

Well worth a listen!

*Wikipedia informs me it was broadcast from 1959 through 1977! Talk about "sea legs!"

There's always P.D.Q. Bach.  I had heard about him way back when I was in grade school, just before H.S. and I got to go to a concert of him years ago Some years ago near Kississmee.The character was developed by a music professor and broiught classical a bit of a comic look and sound.

Rainer Hersch is having fun with classical too.

The hooked on classical series or records was brought out to combat disco.

I just got done playing the soundtrack to Tomorrowland.
