OK, I've heard of hip-hop. Is trip-hop the music that results when they
trip over baggy, drooping pants? ;-)

I think radio music in the US is very limited! There's NPR's classical
side. There's the usual assortment of popular genres, and (here in
Hawaii) traditional Hawaiian music, modern Hawaiian music, and the
Hawaiian-Reggae fusion called Jawaiian. Jazz is played in some of the
clubs and art galleries, but there's no radio station here that plays
jazz. (Unless some older jazz shows up on an oldies station. Any oldies
stations still playing music from the 30s, 40s or 50s? Most of them seem
to think "old" music began in the 60s or 70s, and play only music that
was Top 40 stuff of that time.)
My best friend considers Baroque music to be just on the edge of new. He
really prefers older music than that - Gregorian chant, for instance!
