Launchcast Radio

I have been a paying subscriber to Yahoo’s Launchcast Radio for quite awhile now, and let me tell you that it has been worth every penny. I love this concept they have. I get to rate songs, artists, albums, and genres and then they play songs/artists that I have rated and also suggest others that it thinks I might like. The awesome thing about this is the exposure I have gotten to artists whom I never would have heard of otherwise, since they are not played on mainstream radio (which I coming to loathe). I have bought several albums based upon these selections and have several more on my wish list. Plus, I get to listen to all my “oldies”. I always thought it was funny that my dad still liked and listened to all this music from when he grew up. But now as I get older, I find myself doing the same thing.

Okay, on that note, here is an embarrassing and revealing thing about me, but I recently rated Wilson Phillips really high so I could get some of their classics playing through my radio. Laugh if you will (and I am sure you are if you are not too busy rolling your eyes), but I just have always loved them. I think it is the great harmonies, or maybe it is all the good memories that I have associated with their older stuff. Kristy and I had ALL their songs memorized and we have a recording of us singing to their songs when we were 14. Her hair was red, mine was black. Yes, black. Oh, to be 14 again…

Some good artists I have come across: Keri Noble, The Waifs, Barlow Girl, DJ Sammy, Glassbyrd, Downhere, Pivitplex, and Seven Places – just to name a few. There are so many more.
