Bootcamp Day 58 — The Fish

I listened for a very short time and was struck by two things:

1) The style of music doesn’t appeal to me

2) The message, which doesn’t interest me, is extremely strong

This combination of ingredients sent me on my way very quickly, with no desire to return.

Bootcamp Day 57 — X Country

I tuned into X Country late Thursday night, about 9:10pm Pacific time. After listening for a few minutes, I expected to have about the same opinion of it as I had had of The Groove on Wednesday — blah. But I wanted to give it a fair shot, so I kept listening, and the more I listened, the more I enjoyed it. There were some songs I didn’t like at all, but they were more than balanced by the ones I liked, and I was also surprised to recognize a few songs.

Then Rogue Calls ended, and Cross Kin X began, and I really started to enjoy the music. I wouldn’t have expected to hear Rod Stewart’s “Mandolin Wind” on a country channel, but there it was. And it was surrounded by other, less familiar, tunes, most of which I liked.

The channel page leads me to believe that the music varies a lot from hour to hour here, unlike some channels, so other hours might have left me with a very different impression, but I enjoyed what I heard and will happily stop by again.
