    Good afternoon, all.

    I found this forum while I was doing some digging for yet more music.

    I enjoy a wide variety of music. My classical interests are quite mainstream and probably wouldn’t spring any surprises. Other genres on my spin list are prog rock, Celtic/folk, crossover, rock group and orchestra.

    I drive trucks around western Canada and do most of my listening with my phone hooked up to the truck Bluetooth. Occasionally, I go home where I can listen properly.

    That's very interesting, I've heard of this happening. I guess there is quite a classical community among truckers. I recall there used to be a classical program on pubic radio - it's long gone and I can't remember the title - but that program had quite a following among truckers. The host talked about it regularly and shared many of his over-the-road correspondences.

    Welcome to Talk Classical Kevin!

    A bit of background information that may answer questions you may have now or soon...

    As a new member, certain features are disabled (e.g. profile access, blogs, adding attachments, and certain forum areas until you have submitted at least 10 posts to any of the classical music sections of the forum and up to 12 hours have elapsed since post #10, regardless of the total number of posts one has accumulated. Posts made in the Community Forum do not count towards this 10 post requirement goal.

    General information about the do's and don't's can be found here:

    You want to search certain subjects? You wonder how to insert an image? You can't edit or delete posts? Several of such questions are answered here:

    You may find out, especially during the first weeks, that you make a post and that it does not appear on the site (instead you'll get a message about moderation). This happens because the site's software has flagged your post as potential spam. Most of the time of course, there's nothing wrong with it, and a moderator will approve it.

    If you have any questions about how things work here, you can always contact one of the moderators.

    Anyway, enjoy the site. it's mostly harmless.

    Thanks @Art Rock. Yep, I’m familiar with most of the anti-spam constraints that lower forms of life have forced upon us. I’ll live with it. My focus is on finding like-minded individuals who have information that I’m searching for. The first few posts on any forum are pretty much about testing the water. Thanks for the reply.

    Thanks @Krummhorn. I’m doing some digging and like what I see so far. I’m separated from my music system at the moment (work) but will have more to talk about when I’m in front of my speakers.

    Welcome Kevin. Listening to classical music whilst driving across of your beautiful country sounds like a great combination.

    Hope you enjoy the forum, I have found the games and polls with a common theme sections interesting for discovering new pieces.

    All the best
