What's In My CD Case? May 2023

Alright, I'm old school.  I still listen to albums all the way through, and most of the time I listen to them on CD in my car.  Yes, my car still has a CD player.  In fact, I bought my car (2019 Toyota Corolla) exactly BECAUSE it was one of the only cars available that had a CD player as a standard feature.  

So, if you want to know what I'm listening to at any given time, you need to know what's in my car's CD case.  I usually have about 10 albums in rotation.  If I already know an album well and just felt like listening to it, I will only listen to it once, but mostly I like to explore.  I will keep new albums in rotation for 4-6 weeks, until they are old friends.   Unless it annoys me so much that I can't make it through even a single listen.   Those albums are not mentioned below.  

If you are a boomer or GenXer, hopefully this list will give you some ideas of newer rock bands that you should check out, because rock and roll is not dead no matter what you hear.  If you are a Millenial or GenZ, hopefully you will be inspired to explore the great rock bands of the past.
