I am quite new to this whole meme thing, but was recently honored to be tagged for the first time... a small "in" to the blogging "community", heh.

Liz has been a faithful reader of this site, probably the only one outside of people I know in the "terresterial" community. Her challenge:

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.

Not sure I will tag anyone in particular, but go for it in the comments if anyone is so inclined, those of you who read without your own blogs to connect.

My list will seem somewhat obscure to most people, but it is rooted in a certain place. My music listening is fairly well limited to the radio these days, which most people might find shockingly old fashioned or even excruciating, depending on the radio market where you live. I am very lucky to living within range of a few good public and community supported stations. W and I actually look forward to and adjust our schedules for certain shows like some people might do for TV shows (pre Tivo, of course). When you have no TV, VCR or DVD player, radio plays a big part in your solar-powered life. Thank the Universe for public radio!!

The list (for when I DO get around to powering up the CD player):

1. The Three Altos, Camaradas
2. Father Henepin, Feng Shui Calendar
3. Sara Thomsen, Is it for Freedom?
4. Michelle Shocked, If Love Was a Train
5. Cheryl Wheeler, Ghandi/Buddha
6. Nancy Griffith, Time of Inconvenience
7. Cry, Cry, Cry, Cold Missouri Waters

Maybe someday I'll come back and hotlink these to explain their obscurity. CD Baby might answer some questions, too...

I have the afternoon off to enjoy today... Happy Solstice!!

Very good taste in music you have. Ghandi/Buddha is one of my all-time favorite songs. And I wish Cry, Cry, Cry would get together for another album. I've seen both Richard Shindell and Lucy Kaplansky in concert, but never Dar, which is frustrating because my friends down the road know her (can you believe they keep her to themselves?).
Happy Solstice!
