I realize that music is important to a lot of people. It sure featured prominently in a lot of people’s annual reports. It used to be pretty important to me, until I spent two years as music/program director for a decently sized college radio station where I listened to about 200 new albums/week and kind of burned out on the whole thing. During that time, my tastes definitely drifted away from the mainstream.
My kids frequently ask me what kind of music I like.
