Do they have the say over what radio station is playing? I think if it's my car and i'm in the passenger seat I should either get to pick, or it should be off. I shouldn't have to listen to music I don't like though. What are your opinions?

I am curious what if it is your spouse that is driving and the vehicle is in your name? No matter what car I am in and who is driving the other person gets to choose. However, that is just me I show them respect by letting them choose. My husband feels that whoever is driving has the control over everything but he is a control freak and he is always driving. LOL

we have two vehicles and one is in my name and the other is in my husbands. It doesn't matter which one we drive though he always chooses. He sometimes puts it on the station I like but usually on his station. When I drive the car myself it gets switched as soon as I turn the key. LOL sometimes he leaves it sometimes he doesn't or he will leave it until I get out of the car for something and it is changed when I get back in. He feels he gets to control the volume and everything! LOL

My mom used to let me pick the music I wanted while I drove her around. I would do the same if I had someone driving me around in my truck. In my opinion the driver should be able to choose the music that they are comfortable with while they are driving so long as it's not vulgar or loud. For example there was a time my mom wanted to listen to classical piano while I was driving on a mountain road. The music was so high paced, it made me jittery while I was driving. So I politely asked my mom if we could change it because it was making me nervous and she was fine with it. I put it on a soft rock station and could relax enough to keep on driving. :P

I believe in compromise Why not try to find a station which airs a little bit of everything?

Well I think no matter who's vehicle it is- everyone should agree on the music- I really don't care though about music- I will listen to whatever is on. My best friend hates country music- and I love it- so when we're together in her or my vehicle I make sure I don't play it- I think it is just common courtesy- But if it is your vehicle- you can say -- Hey I'm listening to this- if they don't like it- then shut it off completely.

The host should be considerate of the guest. But, if you follow Shawn Hannity lead, he is always rude to his guest and that is his niche to draw an audience. But, in this case. Find the common ground, if the taste of music don't agree, tune in to Shawn Hannity and hear him whine and bash is guest callers. Or tune into the Clark Howard radio talk show and learn how to spend less, have more and how to avoid scams. You can read more about Clark at http://www.clarkhoward.com Of course there is always Rush and O'reilly. If Rosie had her own talk show we could all be entertained with her point of view.
