Well, I just suppose to list my favorites for my OkCupid profile, but I got carried away and came up with this. It's obviously too much for a dating profile, but I figured I can put it here.

There's some stuff that I might take off later and stuff I probably forgot to put here, especially the comic book section since I haven't read them that much since the 80s. And in 3 to 6 months time, I'd probably have something slightly different anyway!

But generally speaking, it's probably fairly accurate. For this day and time. - OlderMusicGeek

Music That I've Enjoyed Recently

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.
