bestmickey - I played Led Zep I and II for most of my college years in 1968 - 1972.. I may have mentioned I love british rock (The Who, Kinks, Beatles) so you can crank it up.. Have seen jimi a few times (esp since I was a nyc boy and had access to the East Villages Filmore East)...

The music choices here are one of the very few disappointments. Although I enjoy all types of music and attend the squares regularly, my tastes really run to hard rock and blues, ie, AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Van Halen, etc. So, I agree, more rock. As more boomers move here I think the music will change with it. I can't even listen to 640 radio. I mean, that's the music of my parents!

darby/opbob/osh - dont worry... hopefully when I get there the Squares will be revisiting Woodstock!!! The thing that pleases me is when I visited TV last April, I was tapping my feet to all the different kinds of music I heard in the Squares... it's a beautiful thing!

The statistic I read is that the average age in the Villages is 66. That means growing up in the 50s and 60s. Seems the music in the Squares and on the radio is age appropriate. My first visit to TV .. I thought "Great, I'll never have to listen to Rap again".

Looks like you rock music lovers have been heard loud and clear. Did anyone read the Daily Sun this week where the Rec Dept is aware of the changing music taste and intend to bring in different music? Guess there is room for everyone and with two soon to be three squares there are plenty of nights to switch up the music.

We're planning to move to TV this year and I'm glad to hear that there are some people who like to hear a variety of music. I just turned 54 and was concerned that I'd get tired of hearing 50s and 60s music all the time. I love all types of music, except most rap. I love to dance and look forward to going to the squares at night.

Sorry, I know this is a topic change (I'll take 30 lashes). But, I think this may be the best thread to ask the question.

Anyone know where I can get my golf cart a tie-dye paint job (that is, when I get to TV in '08)? ;D
