    Usually it's a CD like Sum 41, Rammstein or Disturbed since radio is typically crap. But sometimes on a tuesday or wednesday when i leave the radio station i do volunteer work at i listen to them incase any audio i edit goes on air :D

    we have a college radio station here that plays a bit of everything, and yeah, local radio is rubbish. We have a Crystal Radio Network selection and sat radio too, but I like to dial in NPR and listen to world radio or the BBC occasionally.
    I bought G3 live in Denver and it was pretty awesome.
    but I like the oldies.
    Nothing like Led Zeppelin's 3rd, 4th or 5th album to chill with when I am just making left hand turns around the city park trying to find a place for my automobile. Its good to hear the oldies like Zebra when you are just chillen.

    depends what car im in. my little pos just has a standard radio, so im on classic rock stations there.

    the vettes got a cd player in it, so ive got a list about a mile long of things i listen to there. ranges from heavy metal to classical.

    FM radio or nothing. My commutes don't take very long, plus my Civic doesn't have anything decent installed in it for me to worry about playing my own music.

    No music for me, I find that my concentration level drops when driving because I may be too engrossed in the music, so I'd rather not have an accident.

    But isn't using an ipod with earphones a bit dangerous when driving?

    It can be, yes. Here in California, it is illegal to drive with both sides of head/earphones; only one side is allowed. In other states, you can drive and be completely deaf... I'd think that the danger factor increases with this stupid law. :lol:

    my stereo for years since has had av, usb, and SD card slots, so i can listen to pretty much anything in the car :)
