No satellite radio here just regular fm programming.

NPR first choice. But if the programming is fund raising or white guilt or boring then I tune into Latin music. I was introduced to it a few years ago and prefer modern Latin to classic rock. If stations are not airing any of interest then I keep 30 CDs of Classical music in the car. Today it was Vivaldi's Four Seasons by Itzhal Perlman.

depends on what we're in. If our SUV, usually XM radio, from Octane to Hair to Boneyard (if cd's can range frmo mellow to metal to blues). But if in our s2000, then usually the tops down and i'm playing, so i dont bother with the radio much and just enjoy the drive...

It varies greatly, sometimes radio, as far as music goes, it depends on my mood.

Right now I think it's a cd (yeah I know) containing Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro (Check them out if you haven't heard it), some RHCP, Tanya Donnelly and Yelawolf that's in the player.

Other favorites include my favorite songs from the show Sons of Anarchy as well as selections of all the random songs I've found online over the years (like Alpha Blondy - Wish you were here, bagpipe SKA/Reggae has never sounded as good. )

In the morning I listen to the Bill Handel Show on KFI. On Saturday mornings if I am driving anywhere I listen to Handel on the Law, Marginel Legal Advice. It is a crack up to listen to people call in for legal advice.

At work I sometimes end up driving to one of our clinics within the county. Between 9am and 12pm I listen to Rush Limbaugh. After 12 I usually listen to Rock, Country, popp, R&B, or what ever seems to sound good at the time. When I am with my wife it could be Spanish rock. Cafe Tecuba is one group we love to listen to.

When it is CD's I like everything from Van Halen, The Cars, Boston, Chicago, The Doobie Brothers, Beatles, The Beach Boys, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Randy Travis, and a bunck more.

It really depends on my mood, time of day, where I'm going and what i'm driving. I too am a child of the 80's so I listen to a lot of music from the 80's. With that said, I've noticed some odd patterns in my music listening.

I find i'm in the mood for 80's mostly on Saturday afternoon's.

Friday and Saturday nights, I love classic rock from the late 60's, early 70's. The Beatles, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, etc.

On road trips, if going back home, a lot of Jimmy Buffet [not only a fan but was born in the same town and hospital (Pascagoula, MS ] Lynyrd Skynyrd, 80's rock/pop, and even 80's country (what my parents listened to).

Sundays and week nights - mostly 90's alternative or similar and some current music as well. Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Depeche Mode, etc.

During the commute to work and back home I'm usually listening to sports talk radio.

Yes, I am a strange one.
