Re: [ElectronicMusic] radio
I found this posting very interesting. I like radio and experimental music.
I checked each link to music sites and explored how they organize content.
It seems there are two distinct type of music hosts; those that have
playlists and those that offer links to radio stations and hybrids. The
later sort offers the opportunity to be surprised by radio and therefore
seems like an appropriate medium for, well, loopers-delight type of stuff
which is very different.
I listen to internet radio through http://www.imradio.com it's technology
that allows software or internet ready stereo devices like the Philips
http://www.internet-audio.philips.com/main/product.html to tune in internet
radio streams with a simple dial.
BTW one station I really like that inspires me to push harder is offered
through a variety of sources including iM Radio. It's KFJC 89.7 Los Altos
Ca. They have streams http://www.kfjc.org/netcast.html, a site
http://www.kfjc.org and database of obscure music -
I find this all very exciting and am looking forward to the loopers-delight
radio show. -pb
