NPR Music

I always listen to NPR in the car during the day, which is mostly discussion shows. But lately I've been listening to a lot of NPR music podcasts at home. Cheaper than actually committing to buying a new album, and very eclectic. I've been listening to:
  • Over the weekend I was listening to several Adele recordings, her Tiny Desk Concert and a live performance on World Cafe. Her amazing voice felt like a great soundtrack this weekend, while I was feeling sick and watching it rain while I was curled up on the couch.
  • Right now I'm listening to Ben Ottewell: A Familiar Voice, On Its Own . One of the lead singers of Gomez, Ottewell has recently put out a solo album, and he gave an interview/concert to WFUV 90.7 in New York.
  • I also like the Gomez concert from 2009 on World Cafe, when A New Tide came out.
  • The Black Keys concert from All Songs Considered is a favorite, too.
  • I told Keith about the All Songs Considered podcast "The '90s Are Back, Or Whatever...." which he listened to and enjoyed .... but I still need to hear it. I think it will bring back some memories!
I'm feeling the need to add more strong female singers to my current playlist. I think KT Tunstall has a new record out, and, based on what I've heard, I want to buy Adele's. Let me know if you have any other suggestions!

You definitely want to buy Adele's album - she is amazing! Santa brought me tickets to see her - going on 15th April, first gig in I don't know how long. Hope you're feeling better and please, send the snow! Ex

Elaine: How fun! I bet she's amazing in concert. Are you going to the Counting House for drinks before or after? Have one for me!;) Keith and I are going to see Ra Ra Riot on April 8. Looking forward to getting out!

Mom/Helen: You're very welcome! And I'm sure Keith would be happy to help you add them, if any assistance is required;)
