When do you listen most often?
« on: May 23, 2013, 10:23:52 AM »
So, as I sit here listening to the Haunting Hour (Sinister Estate) while at work, I was wondering: When do you usually get in your OTR listening?

I work in capacity management for a consulting firm and a lot of my day is taken up by Excel engineering and data analysis. I find OTR to be perfect background noise while I work. Other than that, I think I listen most while cooking.

What about y'all?

I'm the same way.  I sit at my desk reconciling customer's accounts in Excel and keep my headphones in just about all day to drown out the collectors who are constantly on their phones.  I listen to OTR all day (and sometimes music), but it's a relaxing way for the day to go by and for me to concentrate on my work.

If I'm driving my husband's car, then I can also listen on the way to and from work because we have a line-in jack to listen to our phones through the stereo system.

I'm currently in retail, so I don't have the leisure to do what you lucky people do :(

I usually listen in my car to and from work (which comes out to a full show per trip), I used to commute to university, so a 40-minute drive made OTR perfect, and while I'm working out I slip in some OTR between the Led Zepplin and Eminem... :)

You will find that to a lot of people here work is just negligible background noise while they listen to OTR  ;-P

I generally listen to my dose of shows while cooking, eating and sometimes after dinner/lunch over my coffee.  Occasionally I allow myself to enjoy an show or two in front of my stove, on the deck chair in front of it, under a blanket. That is pure bliss, fire and OTR work like a charm, I forget about reality entirely.   Now and then I also listen while in bed, but only shows I already know because... I fall asleep in a few minutes!

I am in retail as well....

I usually listen during my walk to work (40 min) and back (40 min) and during my morning routine. I sometimes catch a listen at night as well before bed. I usually try for two or three hours a day.

I'd have to agree with that.

Well, I'm odd man out because I basically listen only at night just before bed and as I drift off to sleep especially when I listen to 'The Horror' probably not the best idea when I dream!

Not to mention the fact that you'll never know the ending of the stories  ;-P

Me?

I'm a bit of a gamer.

I'll play a game (on my laptop) and while I'm playing, I'll turn on the MP3 player (with an external speaker system) and listen to OTR programs that way.

I play a lot of casual games (especially hidden object games) so it's not as immersive as other games, that way I'm free to enjoy both.

Cooking and cleaning in the kitchen I tune in. I also have the blessing and curse of having a desk job at a computer. Some weeks I can listen to about 20 hours of OTR podcasts and shows while I design and code. If I have something really difficult I'm working on I switch to instrumental or classical music.

In my car.  I do my share of driving and it helps to pass the time.  Also, if I'm doing housework or net surfing.

hey everybody!  I'm still around....been covered up with real life lately!  that has a tendency to happen.

I mainly listen in the car during the 1 hour long commute every day.  I try to listen at work but there are just too many people that want to come into my office....thereby interrupting my OTR time!

Most of the time I listen to them when I get done with my 2nd job.  It's a great way to relax.  I been listerning to the shows broadcasted in 1943  right now.  I also try to listen to them on the day they were broadcasted.

That's a nice idea  :)     One of my dreams (not as in "projects,"  but as in "wild dreams that'll never come true")  is a room in 40's style where to listen to old time radio in period clothes and all... wouldn't that be great?
