When I listen to the radio, I listen to an Indie/Alternative music station. I like the new stuff, although I have some odd old favorites (on my list).
Yeah, that's the kind of new music that really appeals to me, too.

I had an AM radio as a kid, and I listened to it every night when I went to bed. After sunset, my cheesy little radio could pick up megastations in Wheeling, WV (country), Albany, NY (lots of rock, esp British invasion), and Buffalo, NY (Motown, all the way!). The stations in central Maine were OK during the day, but big AM stations ruled at night.

Mostly the 1990s for me.
To name a few:
Tool, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, At The Drive-in, Smashing Pumpkins, Blur, Jeff Buckley, Kyuss, The Foo Fighters...

I know a few of those are still around today, but I think they wrote their best stuff in the 90s

There isn't really a decade on that list that I don't like some stuff from though.

I love AK & US! I don't have that CD, so thanks. I'll definately check it out.

Lately I've been listening to old stuff, from the Carter Family. Much of it was recorded back in the 1920s and 30s, and a lot of the recordings are really bad quality - very scratchy. Great music, though, at least to my ears.

BTW, June Carter was from the Carter Family - she married Johnny Cash.
You might want to check out some of Tony Rice's stuff. He has featured AK on some live recordings years back, and his "Me and my Guitar" CD is a favorite. He is a wicked flat-picker and he covers a lot of Gordon Lightfoot stuff with a decidedly bluegrass bent. He's been around for a long time, and he worked with Grisman on the west coast for a while. Mark O'Connor is a great guitar picker and fiddle player, and his "New Nashville Cats" CD is a killer. The song "Restless" features dueling guitar leads from Ricky Skaggs, Vince Gill, and Steve Wariner - all kings of the Telecaster. Another favorite is "Neck and Neck" - a collaboration between Chet Atkins and Mark Knopfler.

Anything from the 90s or before. 1890s, that is. :)

Another favorite. Marc Cohn's songwriting is incredible, and he has a wonderful voice.

His first hit - "Walking in Memphis"

I've got several of his CDs. If you want to buy one of his CDs, I would highly recommend "Burnin' the Daze", though his initial CD "Marc Cohn" is excellent.

All of the above and then backwards to about the age of the invention of the violin. I'm a musical dilettant I'm afraid.

Also, to any rabid Dire Straits fans who haven't yet been tipped-off - buy some stuff by JJ Cale. Mark Knopfler is great, but if you haven't heard JJ Cale, you will be surprised by how much Knopfler owes Cale.

I like some of those that Evo mentioned.

I have a blend of 60's, 70's, 80's of classic rock, blues, jazz, motown, and some relatively obscure artists. I collected many artists of the 'British Invasion', e.g. Yardbirds, Traffic, Jeff Beck, Clapton/Cream, Led Zeppelin, Yes, Pink Floyd, EL&P, Robin Trower

Here's another piece by Spirit - Taurus -

Robin Trower - About To Begin / In This Place

Robin Trower - Bridge of Sighs

And I collect music from around the world Chinese, Japanese, Indian, African, MiddleEastern, as well as Classical Music.

Of course, one could find the music I posted in the Best Songs Ever thread.

Occasionally I hear newer music that I like but it is generally music done in an earlier style. For the most part I don't like the newer music I hear. Most of what I like comes from when I was growing up (80s and 90s) and aside from that mostly old blues, jazz, and swing.
