KEXP Song of the Day
What Is It
A song a day. More or less.
This show drops five episodes a week. Episodes is maybe the wrong word; they post a free song five days a week. The iTunes archive has the most recent 300 episodes. The official feed has more than 500. Sound quality is good.
What About It
If you’re looking for free music, this is the one for you. There are other podcasts out there that send out a new song every day, but most of the time, you have to subscribe to get all of them; they get put out on the feed one day and then deleted the next, with the feed carrying only one or two songs at a time. With this podcast, there’s a wealth of free songs just sitting there for your listening pleasure. Five-hundred songs! This show also has a variety of styles; you’re never quite sure what you’ll get. The quality is sometimes variable though, but when you’re getting hundreds of songs for free, you can’t complain too much about the subpar efforts.
You have an original generation iPod that is half empty.
Avoid Like the Plague If
You’re Lars Ulrich and you’re still ******* pissed about that Napster thing.
Best Starting Place
Five hundred songs. Go crazy.
