As promised in my New Year's resolutions, here is the first of what I plan to make weekly reader-participation posts. Granted, it's toward an utterly self-serving end...but I've got to start somewhere.
I have been, since Christmastime, the possessor of a very gently used iPod Nano. I love the idea of iPods, which to me are the realization of my wish, back in the days of Northern Exposure, that one day I could be my own disk jockey and throw together my own highly eclectic playlist Chris-in-the-Morning style.
My question to you: What should I put on my Nano?
If you suggest country music...well, it isn't going to happen. But I'm open to just about anything else -- cabaret, Saami throat yodeling, Moby Grape, Tin Pan Alley, liturgical music, stuff the crazy kids are listening to these days. But you have to convince me why.
Any free downloadable tunes out there worth collecting?
How about podcasts? What are some of you listening to these days?
Thank you in advance for great suggestions.
