Musical Resources for the Holidays and Beyond!

Happy Holidays – here’s a little musical holiday gift from me to you:

I listen to a lot of music. In the last couple years I’ve been a big fan of internet radio. Here are some of my favorite stations and why.  You can find most of them via the iTunes radio station world, or the links below.

folk alley

For starters, right now I’m listening to a special feed from Folkalley.com – a great folk music station that I listen to, often. Their regular stream is great and the holiday stream is lovely, too.  I grew up listening to folk music and this station reminds me of a program we listened to on Sunday nights called “Music You Can’t Hear on the Radio”.

Jazz: my favorite jazz station is KMHD. It’s a Portland, Oregon station, and they stream on the web, too.  One of the best radio stations in the world.  I particularly enjoy the Divaville show!

Grateful Dead and Jam Bands: nugs.net!  As a card-carrying Deadhead (first show Philly’s Spectrum in 1976!) this station fills my need for the latest and past gems of the Jam-Band world. Click on the Free Stream on the top right of the site.

Groove Salad!

Groove: electronica/trance – Groove Salad on SomaFM.  Thanks to Alex Kain for turning me onto GrooveSalad over 6 years ago.  It’s a station I turn to whenever I want a delicious mix of groovy beats and electronica.

Radio Paradise. This station is an eclectic mix of rock n’ roll, upbeat folk-rock and everything else good in those worlds. I love the people involved who are always giving away tickets to Costa Rica and sound like they’re on a happy cloud, generally.

Last, but not least, a quick mention of Spotify which we play in our office (either that or Pandora). I’ve just recently gotten turned onto Spotify, but it’s like having all of the world’s music loaded into your iTunes at once. You can search for any artist and generally find something. You can also search for a specific song (something you can’t do on Pandora..) and make your own set lists and do more research-oriented listening. If you pay their monthly fee, there are no commercial interruptions (or, you can be clever and download Mutify (PC), or Smutify (MAC), to mute the commercials). It’s an incredible resource if you’re interested in expanding your musical horizons and hearing and sharing what you find.

I wish you a fantastic musical holiday season.

Peace,

Albert Kaufman
