KCRW: A Lifeline in a Sea of Mediocrity
How easy can it be to subscribe and have a new tune delivered to your music player everyday (except on the weekend---what's up with that? I know: I'm greedy.)? I'm compelled to write by the kickass Chapin Sister cover of Britney Spears' "Toxic." Yes, I enjoy the original and now have an excuse to listen to it again. But best of all, I'm introduced to amazing artists that I might not've heard otherwise. KCRW Rules!
A really good mix of tunes winging their way to my ears everyday (well, almost everyday). The only complaint I have is the annoying indent they have recently started putting at the start but I supose you can't have the moon on a stick.
One of the best podcasts on the web?
Probably! Since first subscribing to this podcast about two months I've discovered so much new music and have also been introduced to some of my new favourite bands. Ok, so some of the 'Top Tunes' are better than others but I can guarantee that every couple of weeks you will hear a tune for the first time that you will love.
Get this podcast. It's effortless and the tunes are always good if not great!!
