Music has always been a huge part of my life. I know I'm not alone in this, by any means. There used to be a group of bloggers that did mix CD exchanges a few years ago. That's how I met Roger. I loved doing that, because I found so much new music that I liked. Lately, I've been using YouTube as my source for new music. I hardly ever listen to the radio any more (unless it's NPR), so I tend to play/listen to my old faves and stand bys a lot. I watch YouTube stuff while I work, so I still get a good dose of new/interesting stuff.
kexpradio, a public radio station out of Seattle. They apparently do a tremendous amount of in studio artist appearances, because they post three or four a week. The variety is amazing--established acts, new acts, indie artists, alternative stars, local and regional faves--and the spread of genres is pretty varied. Not everything is my cup of tea, but there's a lot more hits than misses. I always have several of their shows on my Watch Later list.
Another one I really like is MusicCityRoots, the channel for a concert series out of Nashville that focuses on the wide variety in the Americana and alt-country scenes, but also ranges out into rock, jazz, and world music from time to time. Jim Lauderdale is pretty involved
The last one I want to plug is not connected with any kind of outside entity. It's just a channel done by a fan, who uploads music that she likes. And she has a vast library of stuff to choose from! 1000Magicians has a real bug for the Americana and traditional country scene, so you can find all the good stuff on her channel: John Prine, Kristofferson, Patty Griffin, Nanci Griffith, Vince Gill, Allison Kraus, and of course, the lady, the legend, the goddess herself: Ms Emmylou Harris. If you know me, you can see why I like this channel a lot. It never disappoints. You can find some real gems here from classic performances.
