From the bonus I was given last year, C and I treated ourselves: he got a Wii, and I got a Bose SoundDock for my iPod. (We did put the rest in savings however. We're not that irresponsible.) The SoundDock has saved my life at work. Podcasts have successfully kept me awake when I thought I just couldn't take it anymore. But I can't wait for the day when I quit this job and can have the SoundDock as our at-home stereo. Before that happens, we are going to need some serious amounts of new music. Given that our current radio listening consists of only 45 minutes of a morning talk show, a smattering of regular radio while in the car later in the day, and "Stained Glass Bluegrass" on Sundays, I just don't know where to begin in this search for new music. I typically like stuff that is more simple. For example, a woman and her guitar are enough for me; I don't need a full orchestra. I also enjoy oldies and classic rock. I like bluegrass as long as it's more bluegrass than country. Obviously, I do not like country, and I think C and I have enough rap to last us a bit. So does anyone have any suggestions?
