Not everyone has the luxury of having an auxiliary jack in their car stereo. With the amount of leaks, holes, and weird noises coming from my engine, I'm lucky my beat-up truck still runs period. I can't be asking for a decent stereo. So my commuting music consists entirely of FM radio, which is still pretty nice, if purely for the serendipitous element. Rather than fiddling with my iPod at every red light, good songs just occur naturally. I like not having control over my life for one second of every day.
Are you prepared to get the Led out? Again? Again? Again?
But radio isn't exactly in its prime these days, and the more I listen, the more I get confused by particular radio formats. For example, what exactly is "classic rock"? I often ask myself this, but I don't exactly have an answer. So I tried to find out. It led to deeper questions like "What ISN'T classic rock?" and "What is music supposed to be for, anyway?"
