I don't subscribe to too many podcasts because some tend to be inconsistent. However, the Beat Oracle is always right on. They expose me to music I've not heard and yet play some of my favorite cuts at the same time. Makes me miss the hip hop show at my college station. Right on!
The Beat Oracle is just about the best radio show I've heard in some time. Great to put on while you are driving, cooking, lounging. No annoying ads or wacky personas, just straight-up quality music.
Oracular goodness without the volcanic fumes
Since iTunes first incorporated podcasting I've been perusing the various music podcasts available on the Music Store and independently broadcast, and of the several dozen I've tried The Beat Oracle is easily my favorite. The host, Michael (Noah used to co-host but left the show recently, you will be missed, Noah) is phenomenally mellow but his show indicates deep knowledge of modern music in its manifold variety. Everything from Electronica to Indie and foriegn hip-hop to the occasional smatterings of rock and disco is fresh, with excellent transitions and attention paid to the selection of quality complimentary pieces. The Beat Oracle is 2 hours of musical sweetness that are one of the highlights of my week. If you want a sampling of new and influential artists in the modern musical world and you want to enjoy yourself in the process, you can't go wrong with a subscription to the Beat Oracle. Michael, thanks for the tunes.
