What's on your ipod?

I had a friend tell me that i have an unusally
large variety of music types that i like to listen to.
i think that's a compliment.

my ipod has...
classic rock
country
kids music
new age
easy listening
dance
alternative
classical
pop
holiday
r&b
jazz
rock
unclassifiable

i like to listen to new music and am open
to almost all types of music with the exeption
of rap....there are a few rappers i can tolerate
and perhaps like a tiny bit...but for the most
part i do not like rap ! (sorry boys i tried )

i get exposed to new music in various ways...
my kids, my nieces and nephews (they post music
they like on facebook and of course i have to check them
out), friends, family, soundtracks, the girls at work and
a new thing itunes is doing.
free weekly download of a new single.

thanks to all the people who influence/expose
me to new music.

returning soon....
watch my blog for.....
fav song of the week post !
