How important to you is listening to music?

Some people listen to music every chance they get – silence is no fun! Others listen to music sometimes but enjoy silence sometimes too. And others don’t ever even think to put on music – silence is golden! Which kind of person are you? How important to you is listening to music?

We are audio book listeners as well as 70,80,90 era tunes too. Okay, I am an old country tune listener too. What we are not is listening to your tunes at a camp ground from 5 sites away. We keep our audio and tunes loud enough for us to hear; not for the whole campground.

When driving on local trips in my Jeep, it’s Classic Rock. When in the MH on the first day out, the radio is on local news until that fades, then we may try to find some music, but when that also fails and the radio is turned off, it usually stays off the rest of the trip. We talk about that moving picture in the windshield, where we might stop or just enjoy each other’s company in relaxing silence.

I can’t tell you how many radios I have but strictly for music. Two in the garage, music channel on tv, sirius in the truck. One in each of the bathrooms that scare the hell out of visitors (pre-covid) as they come on when the light is turned on. Plus saved music on my cell phone and a lot of good listening on you tube and hundreds of songs saved on miles of reel-to-reel tape.

For me when traveling, I prefer talk radio. Seems to make the time go by faster. Now that Rush has repaid his loan to God, I will have to search for a new entertainer. I don’t care for most music on the am/fm radio, so I listen to Sirius for mobile entertainment. At home, it was Rush in the mornings. Rarely have music on in the house, but we do enjoy classic rock when doing puzzles.

We like Sirius while home and driving. Don’t use it much while ‘camping’ and detest having to listen to other peoples music when they think people all around them enjoy their type/style of music! If our music is on in a campground it is only loud enough for us to hear.

As someone who DJed for years and years I love music of almost all kinds, but I listen to podcasts most of the time. We have incredible audio equipment in the house, when we’re home, but it’s typically used to broadcast podcasts in a carefully curated news and entertainment feed.

We use our Dish sub almost exclusively for the music, which is on “from dawn to dusk”.

I selected “Important”, but in truth, it’s really “Preferred” over other entertainment options. We listen to music from our motor home satellite radio while driving, parked and even outside around the camp fire, all while we talk to each other. There’s so very little on television at night that appeals to me but DW will stream her moving picture stories from Amazon or Netflix so I’ll read or do crosswords, usually with music quietly in the background.

I like it occasionally as a stress reliever. Sometimes some Fleetwood, America, Chicago ect, then others some Van Halen, Zz Top, Pink Floyd, then switch to some Country, Pop ect. Having adult child you get a mix and the grand kids I am not sure what they listen to.

What’s funny is when your grandkids’ favorite music is what YOU listened to in the 70s and 80s…..and they think IT’S NEW.

We call it “classical music”.

My singing to what kids think is a new song just blows their minds.

I enjoy background music however the other occupant of the rig does not. We do play the nature plus calming music recordings for our birds in the morning. They seem to get more excited when football is on.

Not sure why, but I moved from music to news-radio in my early-20’s. Wife prefers music.

That decision must be driving you crazy these days, Wolfe – ha.

I listened to music (Country) many years with my late wife as we didn’t talk very much. With my new wife we talk all the time so most of the time the radio is off, plus she likes a variety of music which doesn’t suit my taste and I’d rather be talking with her anyway. When we traveled in our motorhome it had a CD player and both of us have an extensive collection of CDs. These days manufacturers don’t put anything in the entertainment system except an auxiliary plug for your phone. Our new(to us) Nissan truck has a CD player built in so we will be able to listen to our CDs again.

I enjoy music while driving. The DW removes her hearing aids and reads. So then I listen to music.

My wife likes to listen to music more than I do. Kind of funny really, since I played a musical instrument in the band and played in a dance band decades ago. Now I prefer most of the time to listen to the noise of my truck’s diesel engine.

We do audio books to music on long trips.

Daily. We have a couple of iPods we use every day while in the camper (and at home). At home we mix up the iPods with our massive collection (very eclectic collection) of CD’s.

Indoors or in the truck, I always have the radio on.
