Music Notes

I listen mostly to The Point, 103.1, or WEBK, 105.3 (“The Peak” from Killington, VT), which are pretty similar “Adult Alternative” stations.

Of course, any station sounds great on my Bose Wave Radio which produces incredible bass in a desktop radio. And you gotta love the credit card size remote control

With my Discman hooked up, I can get that same sound while listening to CDs.  However, I haven’t bought much new.  Of course, Bruce is always welcome on my player.
