BD, I didn't find it when I came through Denver on my way back, but previous times, I used to listen to a radio station that played old over-the-air dramas, and classics like The Shadow or Green Hornet. Is it still up?

Hmmm, I will have to search...AM or FM?

I think it was AM? I don't remember that well, it was a couple of years since I listened to it, I know it was a cool station though. They had an old Dick Tracey program on too.

Not my usual kind of music, but it's kind of.... catchy.

The question is: what is the quality of the music being played? Is it low end MP3, or 192kbs at a minimum? I record music off Rhapsody, which is 192kps, as default. If it is less than that, there is a drop off of sound quality.

It's just entertainment, back ground noise. I never worried about it. Still don't. For what I am paying for it, it is a bargain.

Here's a great place to go, if you like all sorts of music, and you can even get it at great quality, for just a few dollars a month.

Digitally Imported

They just bought out SkyFm.com, and have melded it's channels together. What is Very Nice now, is that the premium package($4.95/month) is no longer at 192kbs, but 256 kbs, which is the best level of Mp3. It sounds fantastic.

I'm really love Trance, and other electronic dance music, and it is found there in Spades, along with countless other genres. If you can afford the $5, you are in for a quality sound treat. Even the regular quality is pretty good, if you are just using computer speakers. I use Wharfedales Airedales, and one of my several tube receivers, to pump out the sound, so I demand much higher quality, and it delivers.

Try it out sometime.

You hung yourself with the music you paid to see.

As for pandora, I know it's great quality, and moreover, FREE.

Great quality? Can you tell me what its streaming rate is?

I will admit that it is "good" quality, but great? I don't really know: that is why I am asking. I know what I get on Rhapsody and Digitally Imported.

I dunno, never really cared to get into specifics, so as long as it sounded clear and good to me. Stick with what you have if you want, I don't care, perhaps you can look it up yourself, I have no idea where to look for that, and with my hearing gone the way it is, I am sure there is no difference between whatever rates you speak of to me.

What the devil is your hearing doing, being "gone that way"? You're too young to have bad hearing, even if you have been around guns for all these years. Usually the 'shooter' does not have the trouble. It's the person next to the 'shooter' who has to endure the noise level.

BTY, my loss of hearing has helped me easily differentiate tube sound from solid state. If my hearing was close to perfect, I probably would not notice the difference.

You know the military never had a monoploy on quiet equipment. My job puts me around loud machinery, engines running (with earplugs, you mostly likely won't catch that tiny clinking or air leaks, etc) and bangs, clanks, blowing air, yelling, and a general cacophony of loud noise. Plus, I never really wore them growing up shooting guns (I know that might have helped it along, trust me), running chainsaws, and working on stuff. Never established a good habit of it until I went overseas.

Even when we tried to wear earplugs as much as possible, but we went through them more than Ghoullio bought in diapers over the last few years, and supply sucked so bad they didn't get us any for a long time, till we found out that fat bitch was just too lazy to dig stuff out of the conex....plus it sucks trying to wear them in intense heat.

It's not ALOT of loss, but enough to where even if I am listening to someone, I ask, "huh?", sometimes, like the words came out, but it was unintelligible or sounded like something else and the hearing test I took said I lost some when we got our post-deployment physical.

Music is music to me as a result.

What a shame. Go out and get yourself a nice tube receiver. You may well note the difference.

Not really, easier to tune out people, like whena girlfriend is bitching about something, as but one example.

People just stop talking so much to me after a time, unless they're a real friend and have every reason to do so then. It ain't bad I tell you.
