It's called Spotify Free. Type in what ever music you like and it will play any playlist for hours. It seems to works great. Can't stand listening to radio stations any more.
What do you guys do for music in the garage? I did use you tube, but it seemed to freeze up the computer after 5 or 6 songs.

That fancy stuff don't work with satellite internet.  Eats up bandwidth like crazy.  Just a good old old country radio station.  KWMT, 540 am,  Ft. Dodge, Iowa.  Any power tool kills it but you can't hear it over the tools anyway.  Noise filter in an extension cord takes care of the florescent light buzz.  Also have a CD player in the radio so can play any of the many old country CD's I have.

IF I have any radio on it is on the PBS station. Lots of talk in day, but Jazz and other music at night. Prairie home companion and other such shows. I have on in truck all the time too. Keeps me updated to current news during day.  It is an old 2 tape boombox, but tapes won't play well anymore and even the volume gets Quirky because of so much dirt/dust in garage gets into the controls. I have it high up on shelf and all, but still gets dirty quick. Any sanding, grinding or painting can make messes on everything in a garage.

We have Amazon Prime and use the streaming service through my phone to a Bluetooth. Sounds great and absolutely no commercials.

I use an old iPhone with a broken screen and no service, plugged into my Dewalt radio/charger, it connects to wireless wifi from the house. Oh, I listen to Pandora.

Pandora ? ? ? Is that like Pandora's Box?  What are you guys going to do when China flips the switch and all those fancy thing-a-ma-jigs THEY made go up in smoke never to work again?  HA!
