What's Music To Our Ears?

All the Michael Jackson coverage got us talking a lot about music in the newsroom. I thought it would be interesting to find out what some of the other on-air folks at KKTV listen to. I hope you'll think it's interesting too!

 Just about everyone likes music. We certainly don't all like the same music.  I did a quick poll of staffers in an e-mail that asked a simple question. If you somehow lost your entire music collection, which five albums/cd's would you replace first?  They don't have to be in any particular order, and it might not necessarily mean your all-time favorites, since the question doesn't imply you can't eventually replace more of them (or all of them).  I suppose these are just the ones you have to have right away.  For some of us it's tough to pick just five out of hundreds, for others the answers came very quickly. 

At KKTV every e-mail we get goes to almost all of us.  There are about 300 a day so we all have to prioritize.  My little blog/music poll is not a priority!  For that reason I don't have all responses yet.  I'll add more as I get them.

So far we know Jesse likes Toad, Todd and Tim.  Brian Bledsoe likes it heavy, very heavy.  John Owens is clearly a Soul Man.  John Harding likes it old school.  So here they are, in no particular order.

Check it out, and maybe comment back with your fave five.
