In order of preference:

1. If I have new CDs, those always go through the car first. I listen a few times to decide what/if I like about them, then they get ripped. Ran across some Living Color, Peter Gabriel, and live Rippingtons CDs cheap, so I've been listening to them for the last couple weeks.

2. FM classic rock more often than not.

3. I am using Pandora and Spotify more through my smartphone into the AUX input. Blues, classic rock, comedy, old R&B (not that passes for R&B today), etc. I've been listening to Rodrigo Y Gabriela recently. Sometimes I'll try the top 100 on Spotify for some variety, but that's about half rap garbage now.

4. Eventually I'll get an Ipod for the 90 GB of music I have, but Spotify serves that basic function for now.

5. Magnaflows at full throttle. Yeah baby! This can move up and down the list on any given day.

50's Rock, 60's-70's Rock, R&B, 80's Rock,Bluegrass, Jazz-I'm all over the board on musical genres. Radio stations? Will pull in local telecasts for road reports and construction advisories if I'm traveling to Denver, Albuquerque, Salt Lake City, etc. As far as talk radio goes, if it's local radio talking about local issues, I might give a listen. Other than that, no talk radio. It's aggravating enough dealing with big volume traffic.

Occasionally some new CDs, news talk radio, mix stations (70s, 80s, & 90s with a bit of what passes for new rock), or no radio at all. NPR is never on my radio. Tried it a few times and the soft monotone voices nearly put me to sleep.

Lots of anger in that music. But Unchained never gets old.

Whatever's playing on the Classical station.. everything else just stresses me out more even if I like to listen to it doing other things besides driving.

What do you listen to when you drive?
\
Listen?

Have you driven a 1970's Diesel Rabbit lately ???

It IS much quieter than my previous Studebaker trucks with Detroit 4-53's, but LISTEN?

Nope, ain't happened since 1976, when I went to getting 50 mpg on Free Fryer Grease..

Good thing, as all I have are 8 tracks from my 'Muscle Car' days of the 1960's.

If I could LIVE STREAM, it would of course be allclassical.org (Supported them for many, many yrs)

My kids got me a radio for my truck, back in 1985. Still have the new radio in a box, and the truck and I are doing quite fine without.
Having spent 30+ yrs as a commercial driver with such exciting runs as WY, SD, NE, CO, KS... I never found much need for 'tunes'.

What do you listen to when you drive?
Diesel clatter, turbo whine, gear jamming, tire hum, wind whistle, ... AND NEVER my passengers (which I seldom have... I LOVE LONG solo drives w/o radio.
