Musings From A Musical Mind

Where’s My Music?

I have always had a love/hate relationship with my CD/Radio.  There is a shelf for it in my bathroom.  Up until recently it has sat there, willing and able to play CD’s or a radio station of my choosing.  I like to have music going while I shower and get ready for my day.

 

The love part of the relationship is this:  I LOVE good music.

 

The hate part of the relationship is this:  I HATE commercials.

 

When listening to radio I have discovered there are TONS of commercials.  I really hate them.

 

When I listen to my own CD – because of the moisture in the bathroom – the CD sometimes skips or won’t play at all.

I have loved Spotify free service on my iMac so I decided to try Spotify premium service for a month so that I could listen to my playlist on my mobile devices and more particularly in the bathroom.  This meant getting rid of the clunky CD player and buying a speaker dock for my iPhone.

 

I actually tried one – returned it and tried another one.  Then because I didn’t want to pay for music from a monthly subscription like Spotify – I decided to explore internet radio.

 

I bought an app for .99 that allows me to access radio from around the world – COMMERCIAL FREE.  It is called SHOUTcast.

I can play it from my iPhone or iPad in my bathroom – my favorites include easy listening stations and movie soundtracks.  They are my new favorites.  Can’t wait to try Christmas stations.

And now there is commercial free music coming from a radio station of music that I love – any time I am in the bathroom getting ready for the day – or winding down for the night.

If you are a music lover – you will love this option on your mobile devices!  And if you have not yet discovered having a speaker dock for your mobile devices – I highly recommend Sony – great speaker sound and has a digital radio with it – with the clock displayed on the front.  Great for at night when I get up to go to the bathroom 🙂  It even has a remote – just like this one in the picture.  I use the remote ALL THE TIME – especially for Spotify tunes or tunes from my own playlist in iTunes.  I know you will love it!

Happy listening!
