Radiolab is finally back with new shows!!! Fire up the link and listen to ‘Choice’ when you get a chance. If you haven’t sampled this show in the past, I encourage you to listen to EVERYTHING that they have on their site. I don’t remember a bad show from these guys. Seriously.
I have turned into such a certifiable public-/talk-radio geek, sometimes I amaze even myself. Maybe the most amazing thing, actually, is that more people aren’t turning off the radio and looking for some worthwhile content elsewhere. I mean, I like Led Zeppelin and the Beatles as much as anybody, but I can only hear “Whole Lotta Love” and “Come Together” on the radio so many times before I want to shoot myself in the chest.
Where are you getting the new and exciting things that you listen to?

I fire up Pandora (www.pandora.com) while I’m at work. I’ve got a rock, metal, and 80’s station set up. Once it gets a feel for what you like it’s pretty consistently good.
I’m a big fan of accuradio.com and their plethora of available channel options. My favorites are Brit Rock, Future Perfect for indie rock, and A Flock of 80s. They even have a talk channel entirely devoted to plots on killing college roommates.
I hang out with a public talk radio geek an it rubs off. I’m also a huge fan of pandora…too bad they block it at work.
I’ve never accuradio’ed, but I am a pandora proponent. I will have to give the former a try.
Quasi-related to this: I have begrudgingly subscribed to the pitchforkmedia RSS feed a couple times, and it consistently flakes out on me; it’ll either fail to load one day, or it will tell me I don’t have permission the next, or sometimes it forgets to notice that I already HAVE the 100 preceding record reviews, and I get them day after day after day. Too bad, because their reviews are usually pretty good.
I quickly bailed on pandora after a station influenced by my Massive Attack requests selected a Christina Aguilera song.
Yeah, a bout of the Aguilineria would do that to anybody… nasty stuff.
Hey I like her!
