Do they include Neu, Faust, Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk (all of whom I like a lot), or are you more into something that isn't nearly 50 years old ?

Neu 'Hallogallo' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zndpi8tNZyQ

Welcome, by the way.

 

Never heard of the first three ones. xD Kraftwerk i know, but dont really hear them. I am more a fan of international less known bands and yes, most of them arent more than 10 years in business. :D

Well, these people were among those that invented a new music form (appallingly labelled 'Krautrock', which didn't describe it at all). Often synthesizer- based, often minimalistic, and often with sampled sounds, it was a rejection of the sickeningly sweet music that preceeded it, and still one of my favourite genres, 50 years on. Try Tangerine Dream's album 'Riccochet', for a taste of it.

I will listen to the album. ;)

So many favorite players over so many years. I would be remiss without mentioning Max McGee and Larry McCarren, whose contributions to the Packers on and off the field were and are extraordinary. McGee was football's Bob Uecker and I listened to countless games over the years with him and Jim Erwin before streaming, and NFL packages. 

We did so because our local broadcaster, which is in Duluth Mn., would always televise the Vikings over Packers and there was no alternative but radio.

Welcome.   It looks like you and I started to watch Packers games around the same time.  Younger fans today don't remember the Dark Times of the 70s and 80s.  I pray we never go back there!
