"What You're Not Listening To" Online Podcast Series

I was asked some time ago what the biggest problem with audio subscription and streaming services was. The answer is simple: for the most part, a computer algorithm is helping you to find something it thinks you want to hear based upon something else you heard. None of that is very personal, in my opinion, and can often lead to hearing the same thing over and over again.

This is a "big tent" show: Well known stars, little known or largely forgotten acts from the past, brand new music from some of the best in the business, hard to find items, some out of print recordings, fan recordings, audio from other sources and even material never available digitally prior to being on this program. Some of these shows feature material in languages other than English, and just about every audio genre is represented. If it isn't, it is just because it isn't yet...

This show has no advertising, is own my own dime, is free to all and reminiscent of shows I would hear broadcast on various college radio stations many moons ago: just people who love music, want to share and hopefully guide you to obtain some of it for yourselves. We broadcast at least once a week on #throwbackthursday, but more often than not, many special shows may appear in a single week or month to commemorate a very unique event or just because there is something I believe you should hear. 

You may not "get" or "dig" every performance, but I can promise you one thing: it will never be dull. Thanks for listening, and love to you all.
