Life goes on... to music

I have missed everyone and I've thought often of posting, but life has just not cooperated.

I have had a little time to relax on-line, and thanks to hsack's recommendation of Pandora Radio, I've been able to create some custom radio stations and listen to just what suits me.

Here are a few of my radio stations that you can access if you wish. This is not music that you are likely to find on any commercial radio station, which probably says something about its general popularity. But I've never been one of the cool kids :)

Women of Broadway Julie Andrews, Barbra, Sarah Brightman, Patti Lupone, Bette Midler with the occasional Josh Groban and Michael Crawford just to keep it interesting.

Women of Country Classic female country artists with a few modern ones thrown in for variety.

Chanteuse Radio Julie London, Rita Coolidge, Jane Olivor

Women in Big Bands Peggy Lee, Doris Day, Marilyn Monroe, Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington

  1. I've missed you, too!

    Have been hoping things are settling down in a good way for you, T2, and the kitties....

    I'm way ahead of you re the music. I'm lucky enough to have some of these singers in my library, especially Sarah, Ella, Billie and Dinah. Do some searching and find some Alberta Hunter...she rocks! And, in a more current vein, listen to Amel Larrieux...a voice made of pure honey.

    Take care of yourself and the family, M!
