The variety and quality of free music available on the Internet is simply staggering. The motherlode of music blogs out there donating MP3 freebies of rare, out-of-print and previously unissued recordings make this historical moment the goldenest age ever for music obsessives (damn you megaupload). As anyone who's done a bit of online audio prospecting knows, the problem isn't just finding the stuff, it's finding the time to excavate the many armloads of albums you absolutely, desperately, ravenously must have.
Since I'm already spending practically every waking moment trawling for chOOns, I thought I'd offer a dynamite list of the best of what I'm unearthing. In essence, chOOn!! does your web-searching for you, and digs up some crazy-go-nuts obscure songs along the way.
In this first episode we sample Bollywood Disco, Turkish Wedding music, Somalian Funk, Russian sci-fi soundtracks, Arabic library records and much more. chOOn in!09:00 - 11:00
