Mallory Kregle, What Are You Listening To?
When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? Usually 104.7 KISS-FM. Other than that, I usually have my iPod plugged in. There's nothing like jamming out to your favorite tunes, commercial-free, with the windows down!
What's the first album you bought? OK, I'll tell the truth. It was probably the Spice Girls -- enough said.
What's the first concert you saw? LeAnn Rimes at Country Thunder.
What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? Muse -- they know how to put on a show!
What's the last song played on your music player? "Mr. Jones," by Counting Crows.
Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track or digital? Digital -- it's so convenient to be able to buy music online and upload it on my phone or iPod. I listen to music all day -- while driving, at work, cleaning, cooking -- all the time, so it's nice that my music is accessible at all times!
What's your favorite album? Of all time? Oh, I just don't know! Shania Twain's Come on Over was my favorite album when I was younger. In high school, I probably would have said Yellowcard's Ocean Avenue. In recent years, it's either Lady Gaga's The Fame or Bruno Mars' Doo-Wops & Hooligans.
Who is your favorite singer or band? I really do listen to a pretty wide variety of music, so picking one is difficult. But, I think if I had to choose, I'd say Beyonce. She can do it all, and it's inspiring because if you want something and work hard, you can achieve it.
Does your computer track how many times you've played something -- if so, what's at the top of the list? At the top of the list is Matt and Kim's "Daylight"! I went to their concert in Amsterdam a few years ago.
What was your favorite new or new-to-you album from 2011? Probably Adele's album 21. My only complaint about it is that she's such a good singer, I can't sing along!
What one song would you play if you had a world-wide radio audience? The first song that came to mind was Jack Johnson's "Constellations". It's simple and perfect -- "Of the stories across the sky, we drew our own constellations." For me, it's just a reminder that life is what you make it!
Who is your favorite local artist? Jimmy Eat World.
What is your favorite local venue to see music? I'd have to say US Airways Center, because that's where I've seen most of the concerts I've been to, like Green Day, Shania Twain, Josh Groban, Muse and more.
What is your favorite music video? Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance".
