It was me, and what I meant by it was "someone too dense to understand music
not defined by rigid genre labels".  Didn't mean anything about the type of
music said person listened to; I was just positing a situation where I was
having a hypothetical conversation about someone who hadn't heard of
Television (or Richard Thompson) and saying that if such a person couldn't
imagine their way past broad labels like "punk rock" or "folk rock", they
were probably a person of limited musical imagination with whom such a
conversation was probably going to be futile (thus, a "lunkhead").  The term
was meant to denote a person of stunted musical scope, not a person who
liked one genre or another... sorry for any confusion.

Most actual lunkheads are into Jimmy Buffett, of course.
