    It could be the 5 CDs a very kind funster burned for me - wall to wall 60's music.

    But it isn't since we load everything on the MP4 player including them - and the selection is 'anything we happen to like' played on 'Random' !

    I'm glad you're still enjoying them.
    We listen mainly to some radio shows I recorded by Robbie Vincent from the 80s. Soul music mostly plus 60s and occasionally some modern stuff by the likes of Adele, Paloma Faith and then one of my favourites, Fat Freddy's Drop. All on I-pod and played through Bose sound dock or sound bar.

    Montgomery Gentry - Rebels on the Run
    Lee Ann Womack - The Way I'm Livin'

    I listen to my beautiful housekeeper talking or snoring. When that gets too much I make her drive. That shuts her up for a while 'til the panic sets in.
    It' not easy to strike the right balance..........

    Karen and I always have music on the go when we're travelling around....mostly northern soul and Motown, with some Stax/Atlantic tracks as well.......Also, a good range of sixties stuff as well.............If I'm on my own, I'll be a bad boy and play some trance and breakbeat.......Don't tell her tho', she'll think that the cd player will be contaminated!

    Anything from Carol King to AC/DC. Although I love most styles of music Jan's has particular tastes.
    Not particularly keen on the radio as the adverts drive me mad :madder:
    If on my own it's something heavy, up loud :rock:

    We usually play Cafe del Mar music. Good gentle driving music and mainly instrumental which stops me singing along and which subsequently pleases husband 'cos I've got a shocking voice even though I think I'm Celine Dion when I've had a few.

    We tend to have my daughters music blaring.

    Hip hop and that sort of junk.

    I get some funny looks at times when people see this old chap at the wheel and that racket coming out :D

    My current top 5 playlist is....

    Radiohead - OK computer
    Stone Roses - Stone Roses
    The Smiths - Sounds of the Smiths
    Pulp - Hits
    Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare

    I'm a massive music fan and can listen to anything not manufactured by Cowell

    My music taste has ranged from Punk, Ska, Britpop, indie music etc. But I'm equally happy listening to Northern Soul, Dylan or Metal. Love discovering new bands (or new bands to me) I've got over 500 albums on the Mac mini which I transfer onto a usb stick and change quite regularly.

    So come on all you "60's dudes" give the Roses a try you just might like it

    We don't play CDs as radio is easier. And the only station we listen to is Planet Rock :)

    Got a Pioneer DAB in cab and a Pure Oasis we are listening to at the mo while we BBQ at Lydney Harbour

    This is interesting.......I always need the radio or the CD player on in the van and in the house from the minute I waken.......Radio 2 or our favourite CDs. But as Bill does the driving he prefers not to have anything on.....the radio I mean, he always drives fully dressed:D
    We don't have the same taste in music and he spends all his time turning things down or off.

    I will turn up anything that I love to hear, whilst he turns it down from the side of the steering wheel:( It's usually anything by the Eagles that he is happy to listen to, although he does get fed up when it's been played over and over. He will listen for so long then say, how's about putting that off for some peace.......so long journeys in the van can be a problem for us.

    When we got the Dakota, Oaktree replaced the old radio with a new Pioneer DAB, radio, CD thingy and the clarity is brilliant, so much so that I have trouble getting out of bed as I can lie and listen to wonderful music coming out of the speakers either side of the bed.(y)

    I like any soul stuff from the 70's, any old disco Simply Red, Fleetwood Mac, Beach Boys, anything that's "hummable" or even a bit of George Thoroughgood.....that gets turned up very loud. It might be easier to say what I don't like.......the current modern forgettable rubbish that's played today, oh and Radio 1, we outgrew that a long time ago.

    I was banned from playing Dido's Life for Rent CD years back........

    Currently have ipod plugged into the head unit set to random, but due to a recent purchase, which will hopefully arrive in the next few days, my passengers will set the music from the rear.
    Just ordered an alpine Bluetooth headunit :D
