The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

Since I got into quizzing I choose to mainly listen to radio stations playing older music while I drive. The reason I started doing this is simple: I was young and though I knew a lot about more recent music, my knowledge of the older stuff sucked. So basically I'm studying while I'm driving. Though sometimes I just listen to whatever.

After a number of years my knowledge of older music is starting to get pretty good. I think before the end of the year I will reach the stage where I know enough of the songs that I won't have to do this anymore. Though I do like a lot of the songs!

Does anyone else do anything like this?

I'm over 50, so I grew up on oldies. Now I listen to CBC virtually non-stop while driving. Trying to listen to commercial stations rotating the same 20 songs for months on end drove me away.
