Anymore these days I listen to NPR more than almost anything else (maybe it’s because I am getting old). This is why the NPR Radio by Livio caught my eye. The idea is a simple one, which is many times a good thing. The radio broadcasts NPR via WIFI and allows you to bookmark your favorite programs. Also a portion of the proceeds actually go to NPR.
I have been a fan of NPR for some time now. I would like to congratulate them on their new segment called Exclusive First Listen. The segment is hosted by Bob Boilen who talks with selected artists that are about to release a new album. The artists are interviewed about the albums and listeners are also able to submit their own questions via chat. I find it really interesting to hear first hand what the artist/artists had in mind when creating their music. Not only that, but Listeners are able to visit NPR’s website and listen to the entire album that is featured for that show. The show is fairly new but already they have featured Animal Collective talking about their new album Merriweather Post Pavilion, and Andrew Bird talking about his new album Noble Beast. I believe they are in the works of doing a show with Dan Deacon, so I am excited to hear that.
