You mentioned ways that we may listen to new music. Well, besides my Sirius satellite radio in my car (which is an absolutely great source for new and old music), I also subscribe to two NPR podcasts:
– All Songs Considered: http://www.npr.org/rss/podcast/podcast_detail.php?siteId=4819413 — This is one of my favorite podcasts. Very knowledgeably hosted, All Songs Considered is a weekly show that covers about 4-5 songs each week. I’ve heard absolutely great and new music of all types from this show, and I really look forward to it every week.
– Open Mic Music: http://www.npr.org/rss/podcast/podcast_detail.php?siteId=4985902 — This podcast is just made up of songs without a radio host or any other commentary.
All Songs Considered is a fave of mine too, but I had never heard of Open Mic Music – great fwd, Joe, Thanks!
Whoops—I lied about the Open Mic Music podcast. It actually includes some commentary—an introduction from the artist/band. Pretty cool stuff.
