MUSIC: What's On Michelle Obama's Ipod?

I got this from Yahoo.

And if you've read my blog before, you know I'm fascinated by what people have on their mp3 player - as this, this, and this show! - OlderMusicGeek

SUMMIT NOTEBOOK: Michelle Obama's request hour
By DARLENE SUPERVILLE, Associated Press Writer – Fri Sep 25, 7:54 pm ET

PITTSBURGH – Hey, Michelle Obama — what's on your iPod?

Sara Bareilles, among other things.

If the singer-songwriter didn't know already, she — and plenty of other people, too — now know that the first lady is one of her biggest fans.

"I love her," Mrs. Obama gushed Friday, giving a shout-out to Bareilles for the performance she was giving at a concert the first lady organized for students at the Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts School.

"She is on my iPod. She has gotten me through many a day," Mrs. Obama said, ticking off the names of two of Bareilles' songs, "Gravity" and "Love Song." Bareilles performed the latter selection during the show.

Mrs. Obama could hardly contain her excitement as she said country crooner Trisha Yearwood, "another of my favorites," and cellist Yo-Yo Ma would be performing.

"You know, what more is there to say?" she said after uttering the world famous cellist's name. "I'm just (as) excited as you all."

My Internet Radio Stations

This is a fairly good sampling of some of the music I listen to. It's missing a few genres I like - such as cajun. I'll work on that later. But it does contain most of my favorite artists. I tried to steer away from the better known songs to give you a better idea of what kind of music the artists play, but I was limited by the songs the website - Project Playlist - had available. But if you want to get an idea of what I listen to, just hit the play or arrow button. - OlderMusicGeek

The internet station that does the best of playing my music is Last.fm. Here's my station if you're interested.

This website, OlderMusicGeek Radio on Pandora.com, does a fairly decent job of playing what I like, although they do occasionally play stuff I don't care for, but overall they're pretty good.
