[pct-l] What’s your favorite hiking music? I’m creating a list to bring on my PCT walk this summer.

I discovered Old Time Radio, and got addicted.


The best shows in my opinion are Gunsmoke and Yours Truly Johnny 
Dollar.  You can download whole years of shows.  Anything before 1950 
seems really dated and I find shows from that period hard to listen to.  
Jimmy Stewart in the Six-shooter is pretty good too.

I carry a couple hundred shows on the phone and while I don't listen 
while walking, I do as I lie down and relax into sleep.
