What style music do you listen to when building I enjoy the most popular of classical, good rock, modern pop, but the more wine i imbibe, it seems to be Sinatra, Martin, or Bennet, helping me build my models, (but rarely do they fly as smoothly as there tones.)

Rock, heavy tending to metal.....

I find I work better and faster with a beat I can scream along too, however SWMBO diagrees about it being a good thing....

Quite often I just leave the TV on whatever staion I was last watching just as a white noise background, otherwise it's Planet Rock.

Planet Rock on DAB. Especially "night time with Alice" (Cooper) after 21:00

Recommended if you *really* lived in the 70's

Its the only channel in the DAB memory..

The sound of my Cats meowing. Pesky little creatures who put footprints all over my lovely Balsa!angry

I don't listen to any music while building, I like to focus on the task. Cats don't help!

I wish the cats were meowing before the rodents made a nest with the plan, wingtips, stab and part of the wheel spats for my, rcme, rearwin speedster; one intact piece of the plan was left, the strut mount fittings. dirty rotten scoundrels!

Radio Paradise via the internet fed through my normal sound system, almost none stop music of many different genres. Well worth a listen.

I generally have some Pink Floyd on when I'm building. Got the CD (and the DVD) of the Australian Pink Floyd live at the Hammersmith Apollo - brilliant cos I was there.

I listen to model flying podcasts usually - I still like ATTF just to see what they're talking about on the other side of the pond.

Peace and quiet.

I find that a lot of modern pop groups seem to confuse tallent with volume and think that a lack of one can be made up for by an excess of the other angry
