    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

    None for me. LOML can't understand why I don't even listen to music (if I have a choice) when in the car.

    I like a fairly wide variety of music, country & western, rock, pop, classical, some opera, reggae, gospel, choir, - but I like it in the silence of home without background noise.

      Music must be inclusive without being intrusive. Any genre that can live within that wheelhouse is fair game.

        Anybody using a Google Home or Alexa to play music in the shop?

        From a music service (Pandora, spotify) or a radio station streaming on the internet (I heart radio) or Amazon music...

        I've got it controlling lights, dust collector and vacuum. I think she's getting off too easily.

          A few years ago my niece bought me a set of work tunes Blue tooth hearing protection for Christmas. I also have a blue tooth speaker in the ceiling. One or the other of those plays music through my shop computer and my library has every genre you can think of although by preference is is light on Rap and Country. When playing on shuffle, going from Abba to Black Sabbath to Mel Torme can be a bit abrupt.

          My favorite genres are 80's alternative (Devo, B-52's, Oingo Boingo, DK etc), 40's big band and inexplicably, ABBA.

            Unlike drinking in the shop, I almost always have music going when I'm in the shop or doing real work in the office. I've worked that way since getting my radio in 5th grade.

              C&W on the Ryobi 18 volt FM radio I've had for decades. It's so old, it's blue and yellow, not hyper green.

                Radio rarely and music on occasion. I don't play anything when I using power tools, but when I'm just doing something manually, I might play some of what I've previously recorded. I like a variety of music which I've recorded to MP3 or have a CD off. I'm a big fan of Celtic, Loreena McKennitt, Simon & Garfunkle, and a few others. That said, the best channel when I'm concentrating is silence.

                    I checked more than half the boxes. I have one of those small "Alexa" pucks in the shop that plays through a set of speakers built into the walls attached to a small BT connected amp unit. I play music depending on my mood or what I am working on. I also have 2 sets of those 3M ear defenders with built in radio. when I am working on the lathe I have a set of BT buds in under my helmet.

                      Haha, I went back to that 2007 poll to see what I voted: an ancient stereo and ancient TV in the garage of my first house. What did I listen to? Sports - either football games or auto racing. Today: pretty much the same in the new shop. That TV is long gone; the stereo is stored and not used. Instead I depend on WiFi from the house feeding a laptop. The laptop's headphone jack is connected to one of those old computer CRT monitor stands that has an amp and speakers. Now it's a laptop support stand + amp and speakers. The only time I listen to music is in the car... rarely at home or in the shop. I have a HDHomerun Prime box which is a funky device that takes a standard CableCard (remember those?) and puts up to 3 cable TV channels into my home network. So any PC/laptop/tablet on my network can access cable TV channels for football and auto races even in the shop. again. Thus I voted "other" this time.

                      In the car: either classic rock, sometimes classic music, football or auto races if any are on. I miss XM's now-dead "Cinemagic" channel that played music from movies.
