What Are You Listening to?
I came into my office today and the Administrative Assistant had a question for me. She wanted to know why she, as an African American woman, only hears the same 30 or so songs each day from the local Christian radio station. Basically she was asking why the station was only playing the typically popular white Christian music.
Now I know that stations pay lot of bucks for demographic studies and such, but really, are we so isolated that we can't have a little variety in our radio preferences?
For instance, as I write this, I am listening to Grover Washington, Jr. in his prepop funk stage. His songs like Funkfoot, Sausalito, and On the Cusp are just fantastic. But I am pretty sure there are not a lot of 50ish white guys listening to Live at the Bijou these days.
What about you.
What is on your ipod that if someone saw it would be a surprise? What do you listen to that would just drive those demographic studiers nuts?
If you are interested, click here to listen to Sausalito, one of my favorite cuts off this album.
