I really don't want to be a person who's always plugged in to her earbuds. I like hearing real life on the bus and the sidewalks, and I feel safer unplugged on my bike.
But Seattle doesn't make it easy, because we have great radio! I'll never forget when the ex and I moved to Port Townsend in 2001 and discovered that public radio at 88.5 played nothing but blues from six to midnight every Saturday and Sunday. I said to Jon, It's a sign. We're in the right place.
I still listen.
But right now, I'm listening to DJ Marte Bisch on KBCS. I had kind of thought, shall I email a request for a Lyle Lovett song? No, I'll just say, "Keep playing what you're playing."
So I sent that email and, guess what? Right now he's playing Lyle! Who's channeling whom?
However, I have to head out on the bus in a few minutes. I'm head cook for tonight's community dinner at St Paul's Queen Anne. (Come on over; 5:30 we eat.)
Is that John Hiatt now?! I don't know if I can leave this music. I might have to plug in.
