I love music! My tastes are pretty eclectic. I go through phases of wanting to hear specific types of music particularly, but I always enjoy hearing a variety (one thing that's nice about Pandora's Quick Mix). I also like getting a mixture of familiar music and music that's new to me (one thing that's nice about Pandora in general). One wonderful thing about music is that there's always something new to discover. I'm grateful to Pandora for helping me to discover many excellent artists of whom I wasn't previously aware, in addition to learning more about the artists I already knew and loved.
My music favorites are too numerous to list, but they include: classical, swing, new wave, 1960's (my early childhood period), 1980's (my coming of age period), 1930's & 1940's, world music, church music, and alternative (including some quirky, experimental stuff). I also enjoy a lot of jazz, folk, bluegrass, old time country, and historical music. The Beatles, Abba, and They Might Be Giants are among my all-time favorites in popular music (as are many artists of the big band era).
I grew up in Virginia and West Virginia with a family of four with two legs (me, two parents, one sister) and at least one with four legs most of the time (cats). I love cats, horses, and animals in general, currently having four cats. My special interests include acting, writing, music, reading, and history. I go to Ware Episcopal Church and sing in the choir.
