I spend alot of time in the shop with the radio on classic rock station; and me on the air guitar. Also listen to alot of public radio. Just wondering; what does everyone listen to (if anything) when you are in the shop?

I have the TV on Speed TV. Never sure what’s on. Usually somebody talking.

60’s, 70’s ,80’s ,90’s and so on. I find my likes in music cover many years. I even like some of my son’s music. LOL. The key is keeping it loud enough to hear over my woodworking processes, but low enough not to disurb their peace. Really, the only time I hear it is in between operations, because I wear ear protection any time I’m using my power tools.

I pulled the speakers and CD changer/AM/FM/Cassette deck from a truck I got totalled out of. I built cheesy speaker boxes and mounted them on the rafters fore and aft of my saw table (four speakers). I got a Radio Shack converter to change 120v AC to 12v DC and use that to power the deck. With a converter cassette I can plug in my iPod and listen to every CD I own plus my wife’s collection and my stepson’s networked iTunes library (ripped to MP3 CD). I favor Classic Rock, Blues, goofy jug band performers like Ry Cooder, David Lindley, Dan Hicks, a little classical (Mozart, the first teenage rock star; Bach, Haydn, Grieg, Mendelsson, Respigi), a little classic country (Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, Oh Brother Where Art Thou, Randy Travis, Patsy Cline). My wife has a huge load of contemporary Black Gospel-Praise music (The Williams Brothers, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Ann Nesby). I cover the bases, with the exception of Hip-Hop and Rap. If I can’t whistle it or attempt harmony I can’t go there.

I hear (small pun) that there is a Peltor Work-Tunes set of sound dampening headphones that accepts iPod input via a stereo mini-plug connection. Any one out there have a set of these?

I have recently discovered that listening to smooth jazz helps me cut accurate, I guess it’s because I’m not boobing my head or trying to remeber lyric and forgetting the measurements. Other than that, it all depends what I’m am in the mood for, but I like to save the bouncing music (Red Hot Chilly Pepers, Ramons,ect.) for clean up.

I listen to the sound of the tools and the wood speaking to me.
No background music.
