I play music all day, at the office, in the car, and at home. Don't have much in the way of fancy gear, but I do love my iPod and iTunes for the home stereo. We still have lots of vinyl and I have burned quite a few to mp3 to enjoy on the iPod. And as much live music as we can stay awake to see, old pharts that we are!
Mostly Americana, current favorites include American Aquarium, James McMurtry, Chris Knight, Grace Potter, plus a little bit of the sort of country music that reminds me of Jimmy Buffett, like Zac Brown.

What kind(s)? Mostly rock & roll all eras, guessing 80% of my library. But my library has significant chunks of jazz and classical as well. I like most genres except opera, gospel or hip hop/rap. I have 2500+ songs on my iPod, the Beatles are my biggest chunk at 130 songs.

How - Earphones, Stereo, Auto, live? I have 400 CD's that I almost never play anymore, everything is on my iPod, iPad & iTunes. Rarely through earphones (only when flying), usually through my PC speakers, Bose dock, or through our car stereos (both cars have iPod integration, really slick).

When? Off an on all day, no schedule.

How much... ie. all day, rarely, never? Probably an hour or two per day.

And one more major question... as you grow older, does music play a bigger or smaller part in your life? About the same so far, except why I was a teen and music was even more a factor.

I love the music/arrangements. I often don't know the lyrics, much to DW's amusement.

I used to covet audiophile equipment, but my hearing is not what it used to be, so extreme aural accuracy is lost on me these days. And MP3 is probably all I can really process (sigh).
