Landlocked123 Posted May 4, 2015 Share #1 Posted May 4, 2015 (edited) Hi All, I really like listening to music in my shop especially when working with hand tools or the little fidelly bits. For years I was using a '80s boom box and the radio. It was fine. Then this past Christmas my daughter brought me into the 21st century. She gave me something called a JBL Flip. It's a Bluetooth speaker, it's only about 2" in diameter about 7" long and sounds incredible. It's also wireless and rechargeable. She also got me subscribe to Spotify, an Internet music site. It's costs about 10 bucks a month and I've been able to find any artist or album I wanted to listen to though my iPad. Today though, I hit a home run. I've always liked traditional sea shantys but the only places I've ever heard them were fairs, festivals and the like. On a lark, I searched for sea shantys. The site came up with artists, albums and playlists. There were hundreds of songs. I selected "shuffle play" and started listening. I was great working on a 19th century boat listening to 19th century music. I loved it and actually sat there listening for about a hour after I finished what I was working on. Anyway, I'd like to hear what others like to listen to while modeling. So......Farewell and adieu to you, Spanish Ladies, John Ps. I also found the sound track to "Master and Commander". J. Pps.
