What music, radio programs, whatever do you listen to as you go about your day? Could be in the car, at the office, at home as you do things, whatever.

On in the car while driving to work and noodling about London:

"The Mission" by Styx. Yes, they are still going, with three original members plus others (including Canadian Lawrence Gowan) who joined in the nineties to replace originals who left. And, to be honest, The Mission would probably sound much the same if it came out in the band's heyday of the late seventies and early eighties. Even without the distinctive voice of original lead singer Dennis DeYoung (Gowan has quite ably replaced him), this is very clearly Styx. And that's both a blessing and a curse. It's a blessing if you're a fan of eighties rock or at least old enough to remember albums like "Paradise Theatre" and "Grand Illusion" and a curse if you're neither. It's a concept album about a mission to Mars and has some memorable and so-so Styx songs on it.

In the car, I listen to whichever radio station isn't playing commercials. I realised that I like Twenty-One Pilots by flipping around that way and have since bought their album.

Depends on my mood, talk radio, jazz, rock, classical, country, moldy oldies...etc.. Sometimes I pop in one of my pre mixed tapes when I just want to listen to my favourites.

I do that sometimes, too. It's amazing how limited the radio selection is in a market of c. half a million people (if you count Middlesex, Oxford, and Elgin Counties including the cities of London and St. Thomas), though. Since my phone is paired with car's audio system through Bluetooth, I keep some favorite CD sets on my phone to play and also get music from various apps that support Bluetooth streaming.

I'm currently using Hoopla, a music and video lending app that the public library subscribes to. Music loans are for a week, which is enough time to check out an album. Downsides: app isn't really as capable as, say, Spotify or Google Play Music and you only get 10 checkouts a month including both music and videos.

Another album from Hoopla on in the car the last couple days: "Nostalgia" by Annie Lennox. I knew Annie had been singing some "standards" having heard her sing "I Put a Spell on You" live, but didn't realize she had a whole album out. Very good renditions of some classic jazz and pop songs.

Not sure it was a crack at member Hilary.

I read it as yet another dis of Clinton's failed presidential run.

Thanks John. That's how I meant it. Sorry, my 'l,' 'll' confusion.
