Here's a link to the ongoing 1000 Recordings podcast.....As I've talked to readers and music lovers over the last few years, I've repeatedly heard laments about how this website doesn't offer audio on each of the entries -- and, more generally, about how difficult it can be to do exploratory listening. There are no perfect solutions, but for the last few months two well-informed listeners, Anthony Joseph Lanman and Mitchell Davis, have been playing excerpts and discussing many of the book's entries. The latest episode, #10, includes music from the Band and Ray Barretto. The excerpts are usually generous and carefully chosen, making them more ideal than the 30-second "sample" for getting a sense of what the music sounds like. All of us here thank Tony and Mitch for their effort, and urge you to check out and support their site!

I’ve seen that. It was a very cool idea when they started doing that. I was really surprised.
