    Those are the types of singers I call soft rock. Love them all.

    I listen to country every time I'm in my sewing room/office.

    I listen to either public broadcasting, the sports talk/game station or occasionally music. It helps to have something in the background then I don't cue into what else might be going on in the house (the husband and adult son) that might distract me!!

    I love Daniel O'Donnell also and have been to Branson several times to see him. always watch when he is on PBS.

    I have about 2,000 songs in my computer and some nice speakers hooked up to it. It's in my sewing room and I listen to almost anything from classic rock to classical, or if I'm in the mood I'll get an audio book on CD's from the library to listen to instead.

    Sirus/XM Radio online for me. Love channel 163 for the books and channel 32 for Christian music. Unfortunately they moved my talk radio favorites channel 158 and 165 to a higher subscription level online, those stinkers.

    Neil Diamond is my music companion. Are there other singers? hahaha.....I also have a tv, dvd and tape player in the sewingroom. Everyone needs company. Oh excuse me - I mean along with the purrs and woofs.

    When I do listen to music, it is 50s, 60s oldies and I sit on the stability ball for my balance and sore hamstring. Of course, Elvis always warms my heart.

    Have any of you ever tried "Upchucky.com"? Sounds awful but you can listen to music from all the way back in the 40s on it with a constant change of songs. Here is the link:

    Me too!! I have to have something on in the background. I listen to our local Christian station online, my radio doesn't get it in very well. Here's the link just in case someone is looking for a good one. life1019.com

    I always have music on. Yanni, Josh Groban, Sarah McLaughlin, Kenny G, sometimes country or 50's. I've been known to dance with my Min. Poodle, Dani or my Diesel Cat.

    I always have my iTunes running off my Macintosh in my studio, with a mix of all my favorite CDs.... Josh, Charlotte Church, Andrea Bocelli, Sting, Chris Botti, Katherine McPhee, Jane Olivor, Linda Eder, Elaine Paige, Sarah Brightman, Andean pan flutes, etc. etc.. Love Irish/Celtic music... Loreena McKennitt, Enya; and most broadway music as well... I really like almost everything as I sang my whole life... school, church, Sweet Adelines, Chorale. Music and quilting are my soul! I am MADLY, MADLY in love with Chris Botti for the present. He gives me total shivers with his incredible trumpet - THE BEST!!!!! He is trumpeter for Sting, and I've always been crazy about HIM!!

    I have a variety of music, oldies, country, rock, downloaded onto my Bose surround sound that I play when I'm sewing. As long as my husband isn't home watching TV. I have a small cheap stero CD player I use when he is home.

    I listen to music or a book on cd while sewing. If the family is around, I will listen to the tv, son's school day or just family talk.

    Love the Gaithers and used to watch them on TV every Friday night. Now they are on an hour later and I'm usually in Lullaby Land by then. I sure do miss them. :cry:

    I usually have the TV on something I don't actually have to watch. Either a movie I've seen so many times I could quote it myself like "You've Got Mail" "Pretty Woman" those are my favorites. This time of year it's either NASCAR or golf.

    Is your computer in your sewing room? Find a radio station anywhere in the world, and let the music in.....I get better reception on the PC than on my radio (and a better selection).

    Rock and roll is my preference although I like some of all kinds.

    The best day is to be in my quilting room with the "Easy Listening" music low and sewing.
