Favorite moment with music in your car.
1980 I'd just broken up with a girl named Joyce. My buddies and I hopped into a friend's car. They had a surprise for me. One guy put on Devo's 'Freedom of choice', and they all began to sing alone with it using slightly tweaked lyrics, "Freedom...

I forgot to mention regarding my first post. That cassette deck in the car had a mic jack. I still have a tape or two filled with my 17 year old self and friends hamming it up. I even recorded a cop giving me the 3rd degree when he pulled me over.... 
Favorite moment with music in your car.
Just a couple years ago. Imagine a very rainy day near Portland Oregon. The rain has just ended, there were puddles everywhere. I turn up the car stereo, some classical station. A very lively song comes on, can't remember which one. At that point...

Placebo 'Meds'. My daughter and I loved the line 'Let's follow the cops back home and rob their houses' Death Cab for Cutie 'Plans'. Includes a song that'll make your spirit soar. Western States Motel. There's just something about this chill ind...

What is your most fond musical memory.
Just remembered another one. Understand I used to play the drums. I'm on a plane, when in walks Ginger Baker, strolling down the isle. I was a starstruck young doofus, so I say..."You're Ginger Baker". He replied, "And you're not!". Why he wasn'... 
Have you found your "End-Game" speakers yet? I have. And it feels so good!!!
I've had my used Dali Euphonia MS5 speakers for a few years now. I've added a 4 sub array. I'm still blown away every time I sit and listen. I always have a big smile on my face. I've noticed a couple pair on sale right now for a darn good price.... 
What do/did you do for a living?
Just retired commercial artist. Working mostly with Disney the last 35 years. Freelance. I’ve painted for all the movie companies, VHS + DVD covers, movie posters, etc. If you’ve had kids, you’ve probably had my art on your shelves. House in the ... 
What is your most fond musical memory.
Around 1969. I was 16, played the drums. I was jamming with some guys I barely knew. Some new guy walk in, older than us, picks up the bass and joins in. Damn he was good, we all thought. After he left one of the guys says, "That was David Brown,... 
What is your most fond musical memory.
My best friend told me she once (in New Jersey) went to sort of battle of the bands in a high school auditorium. Don't know the year. She was leaning on the stage watching among other bands, Black Sabbath before their first album came out.  
What was your first record?
Cat Stevens, my favorite movie from the time, Harold & Maude wouldn't be the same without his soundtrack. I used to date quite a lot. I'd take them all to the midnight showing of H&M that played in Redondo beach. If they didn't like the fi... 
What was your first record?
jay, you made me laugh out loud!  
Being alone with your music
oregon...small world. I was recently looking at my high school yearbook, and noticed that Wolfman Jack DJ'd at my graduation dance. Miraleste High, LA. Just remembered the first album that made me realize parents were clueless about 'current' mus... 
Are your listening levels healthy? Doing damage?
My friends laughed at me when, even in the 60's and 70's I'd put earplugs in whenever my band played, or when I'd go to a concert. Who's laughing now? I'm the only one that doesn't wear hearing aids. Hypersensivity has paid off.
