At the moment, I'm listening to Deep Dead Blue by Anuna, an Irish choral group. I almost always am listening to Anuna while I'm on the computer, come to think of it! I do find it difficult to read or write while listening to music with lyrics, but since much of their work is in Gaelic or Latin, it just registers as background music to me---I don't process the words...

You have been having a great time here! I just discovered this thread. The current band names are hilarious. My kids go see The Angry Bananas and The Sticky Bandits and Fatter Than Albert. I'm a little concerned about the disturbed tropical fruit.

That is way cool fjp! It's pleasantly addictive! I got a passle of l.p.s this week after I culled clearance and our regular stock. Right now I'm listening to Herbie Mann, Push Push.

I am in charge of the albums for the most part, and b.) we are going to re-initiate Friday night l.p. night at our store.

Should be a blast! Glad your having fun with it, I'm with ya on this!
