Interviewed Monday on our sister radio station in Cincinnati WIZF, Obama ran through his musical tastes, an eclectic and all-encompassing list of artists and tracks that reflect the varied coalition of voters he is seeking to attract.
According to Obama, he says it has “a pretty good mix.”
“I’ve got old school – Stevie Wonder, James Brown. I’ve got Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan,” he said. “And then I’ve got everything from Jay-Z, to Eminem, to the Fugees, to you name it. There’s probably not a group that you play that I don’t have on my iPod,” Obama told the station’s E.J. Greig.
President Obama also showed off his eccentric music tastes, “I’ve got some jazz – John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Gil Scott-Heron,” the president said, adding, “You’ve got to mix it up. It just depends on what mood I’m in.“
