Bathroom Monologue: Medium Listening
Not easy listening, because too much pop music chafes the soul. But not hard listening, because too much inflammatory or depressing music is not what I want to listen to when I’m driving a gas-powered hunk of plastic and steel. This will be a Medium Listening station. “Medium Well,” we’ll call it, with smooth Jazz and neat tones that nudge your values instead of attacking them. It will be frank and friendly, a hot stove to gather around while all the other stations offer burning buildings, brimstone and bad commercials.
