Do you like music that isn't popular or played on the radio a hundred times a day?

Ever heard of Zero 7, A.I.R., Lucia Iman, Tracy Bonham, people who aren't sell outs? They have pretty good music and it's nice to hear something different than what's normally played on the radio.

  • I listen to Pandora Radio online. You can make your own station based on someone you like. Say you like Colbie Caillat. Pandora will play people like Colbie and then you can make a new station based on that person, like Jack Johnson or Jason Reeves. That way you learn about new people you didn't know about.

  • I like all sorts of music that isn't played on the radio. I don't think the music on the radio is performed by sell outs though. I mean, they make music and get paid for it. It's a job. Nothing wrong with getting paid for doing what you love.

  • I prefer music that isn't over-played on the radio. I also like a lot of music that is a little older and that most people have completely forgotten about.

  • I never listen to the radio unless I'm listening to NPR - which incidentally is a great place to pick up names of some great artists as well. I like indie music a lot, but I'm bad with band names. I just listen to the thousands of songs on my husband's computer.

    I remember Tracy Bonham from the 90's. She had a hit called "Mother, Mother" and I had her CD and liked it. I don't think I realized that she was still out there though. I kinda thought she was a one hit wonder. Glad to hear she's just gone indie!
