I'm sure this will split opinions but just for fun what music do you have on in the workshop?

It's Planet Rock for me all the way !:listening_headphone

You can select more than one option

(Points off for radio 1 !)

Radio 4 Extra. A diet of ancient radio comedies and the odd play. Never music in my workshop.

Never have Music on because most of time Can't hear a bloody thing in my workshop for grinders or compressed air and chips rattling off frame. And When Wiring or Tig welding Aluminium I lock all the doors and put a Big FU@~OFF sign on the door.!! .. :tyrannosaurus:

Thou I do like Classic FM when I'm Designing in Cad or Camming up parts.!

I put a Raspberry Pi2 with OpenElec (Kodi) on it attached to a small monitor (attached to my server rack), which gives me my whole music/video (plus internet streaming) available to me in the workshop. Favourites at the moment are Andy Summers (Green Chimneys and Earth Sky), Cocteau Twins/Robin Guthrie, Bert Jansch (usually for woodworking) and Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros, but I have a pretty big music collection, so it varies alot. The Pi2 was only about 30-40 including enclosure, so a bargain in my book for a media centre.

Oh there's a vid on my channel setting one up somewhere......easiest install ever.

I'm afraid its radio 4 for me:untroubled: that's a step up from R2

I'm enjoying a Canadian radio station called Indie88 (online obviously). Good music, something different and I particularly like the random ads for snow tyres, shops I can't go to and traffic reports for Toronto. If I ever hear of a moose loose on the freeway that would really make my day.

Has to be the John Creedon show over here on RTE Radio 1 from 8pm till 10pm. It's like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates. Anything from Nick Cave to Carl Perkins to London Grammer and back to Cohen, all in two hours.
Plus when it's over I know it's time to turn off the power and head back to the house and stay in the good books.

All I want is Radio GaGa, Radio GooGoo !

I don't like music in the workshop. I have tinnitus anyway and that is generally better than most of the crap broadcast. As far as Classic FM is concerned I have heard all 6 of their records :sour:

Anyway the voices in my head say that music is from Satan !!!

for a stage, I started putting on netflix, or or sky sports. but found I was drinking too much beer, not getting anything done! Music stops the dog barking at his own shadow anyway.
