OK... I admit I have an ulterior motive for asking. I love music. All kinds of music. In fact, I'm hard pressed to name a genre that I don't like. ...

What are you listening to?
I'm fortunate to live within broadcast range of a couple radio stations that don't follow a corporate-approved playlist. But sometimes I go online and scout around for something even more obscure. Ergo, my request here. Have you heard anything lately that stood out as noteworthy? If it's something online, that would be cool. But even if it isn't, and you think it's especially good, post it anyway. Please don't hold back.
So... what are you listening to?

Right this minute, Thin Lizzy. Earlier on some Rory Gallagher.
Generally speaking I'm a Blues and Blues/Rock kinda guy. You'll often find me listening to Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, Cream, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Otis Rush, Blind Boy Fuller, T-Bone Walker and a lot more in the same area. I'll listen to anything that isn't a product though. I can't stand corporate music of any genre any more than I can stand "yes" men.

Kitaro, Medwyn Goodall, Adam and the Ants, Tchikofsky, Handel, Mahler and many others, but not all at the same time
Currently listening to Medwyn Goodall: Moon Goddess"I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
It'll happen to you too."

Piedmont Blues that originated in the Southeast. Pink Anderson, Etta Baker, Sonny Terry, Blind Willie McTell and Blind Boy Fuller are just a few of the recognisable artists associated with the Piedmont Blues tradition.

That's some nice listening there MikeTbob
Dapper, you're the first person I've heard refer to Piedmont blues outside of wikipedia I came to it through Blind Boy Fuller and it's had a big influence on my own playing. Maybe you guys would like to see how I came to Blind Boy Fuller, with me growing up in Ireland....well, check this out :-
