    My husband bought me a tv for my sewing room last christmas because I like it on not so much to watch but just for the noise. Then when I need a break from sewing I watch a little.

    It depends on my mood. I may listen to a ball game, put on an old movie whose lines I know by heart and can tell you the scene; sometimes Easy Listening, Beautiful Music, on ocassion some opera, Southern Gospel, sometimes oldie western, but mostly the birds and chickens and nature. I like the quiet. You can 'hear' more. As they say, "Silence is Golden". I am quite comfortable with the 'voices' in my head. :roll:

    I turn on the television in my craft room and listen to all kinds of detective shows. I've heard them all so I don't have to see the show to know what's going on and Who Done It.

    When I'm in my sewing room piecing, I have HGTV on, seldom look or pay attention, just like noise. When quilting at dining table I have talk radio on, don't pay attention to that either. I just like noise, sometimes listen to news and weather when its on.

    I like to listen to country music, or old time 50's music on the local radio station.

    I like classic rock and some country music. Sometimes, I just want quiet.

    We have a TV station here that plays the old old shows like Leave it to Beaver, Mike Hammer, Run for Your Life, Robin Hood, My Little Margie, Life With Elizabeth, etc shows from the 50s B&W. Since they play the same episodes a couple of times a week, I don't have to pay that much attention to follow along.

    I listen to myself talk to myself or I'll talk to my "quality control manager" (my cat...LOL). I discovered I work better without a radio, CD's, TV or anything else that's distracting (I think that includes my DH...LOL).

    Sometimes I listen to silence, other times I have the tv on a retro channel or a DVD playing. Default listening is "Serenity". I love old radio shows but my husband yells about those. Says they are "too dramatic". I told him they had to be, there were no pictures!! LOL

    I pull up Pandora on my computer and listen to 60s music if I'm quilting and country if I'm piecing.

    Oldies (70's/80's), blues, country, just depends on my mood. Oh, and sometimes nothing at all.

    Sometimes listen to my iPod--like a little time machine going from junior high up to the present! Since I got an iPhone I've been listening to some vintage radio (Our Miss Brooks, Burns & Allen, etc.), and I'm hooked on This American Life. Pandora radio is always good, too.

    I usually have some bad reality show on through Hulu. Enough for background noise, but bad enough that I don't stop sewing to listen.

    They are mindless but pass the time.
    What is Audible? I listen to books on tape.Mostly murder mysteries.

    I love to listen to audio books from the library. They sell audiobooks, both tape and cd for 50 cents and I grab all I can get ahold of, except devil worship type stuff! Am listening to one now called "Coal Run" - takes place in the coal mine area in Pennsylvania. The coal mine's name is Gertie. Who can go wrong with a book with a coal mine in it named Gertie. Except Gertie blows her gasket! The newer the book, the more profane words you find in them. So when I hear those words it makes the sewing machine jump a little!!!!!!!

    Oh well, I am heading back to "Coal Run" right now and get a block put together. And then I am heading off to Harbor Freight!!!!!! Edie

    I listen to the quiet and the hum of my sewing machine. It's so peaceful.
