Depends on my mood, mostly it is blues and rockabilly, but sometimes I feel the need for something more rougher than I switch to metal, hardrock, etc and when I feel nostalgic I put up the music I also loved as a youngster, new wave, industrial, punk etc.

And I also like to listen to stand up comedians while driving, you get a lot of strange looks of other people when you are driving and laughing.

Audiobooks from the Libby App quite a lot at the moment.

Or some Tame Impala, Radio 4, Catatonia, 80s pop/electronic, Clean Bandit, or many others.

I use a Bluetooth receiver plugged into the aux in on the Saab stereo and Amazon music provides (if not an Audiobook).

Can you actually follow an audio book or TV show script whilst driving?
If I'm listening to an album I often find I've missed several tracks if road/traffic conditions are bad and I'm concentrating on driving

Radio 4 generally. If it is a long journey and it gets too repetitive whatever CD is in the slot, currently The Corrs. If it is the TR7 nothing, just listen to the engine and for something breaking down (not that it ever has yet).

Spotify premium (keep getting 3 months for free). Since Ian Peart's sad death in mid-January I have been exclusively binging on Rush!

Cant stand JV on Radio 2. All he does is find two extreme opposite views and get them to argue.

The kids bickering, and waiting for the next thing to fall off the Volvo.
I haven't had a working radio for years, when I did have a radio, I found the desire to air guitar whilst driving distracted others...

On my way too and from work (only a short journey), it's R2. When I'm in the Pool Car heading out for meetings, it's Absolute Classic Rock whilst in range of the Humberside/Sheffield/Leeds DAB Transmitters, otherwise it's Absolute Radio.

At the weekends, it's CD's, currently flipping between The Damned's most recent "Evil Spirits", and their official best of collection "Black is the Night", and various New Model Army albums. The best bit, my youngest daughter (10yrs) loves them both too :mrgreen: :lol:
