Great for alarm clock music, nice way to keep up with new CD's

By abc in sf - Jul 25 2010

Entertaining, well produced; covers a wide range of music. I've really enjoyed listening to this over the past several years. The podcasts are short enough for a quick listen as my morning wake-up music on my alarm clock. Nice way to supplement written reviews of new CD's because of the ability to listen to the tracks themselves. This has helped me to buy a few CD's that I would not otherwise have ventured to purchase. Thank you!

Great way to stay informed about new releases
