My fave's these days: Brass Band & Zydeco, Rockabilly
Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson are probably my favorite non-DJ musicians of all time; the rest can be found on "Lowrider Jams".
I am a former a college-radio d.j. who loves most genres of music; techno is right up there with 50's & 60's classics. I am definitely an Elvis girl vs. a Beatles girl, and think Pandora is one of the greatest things since sliced bread. If I'm not finding new favorite tunes on here, I'm probably finding them through 'Wax Poetics' magazine or turntablelab.com. My first exposure to electronic music & turntabilism/underground hip-hop was when I was about 15 (through friends and late-night pirate radio)... the amalgamation of these two has been my favorite ever since;)
