I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but I really love every release of Steven’s Acts of Volition Radio. Since he lives on Prince Edward Island, he’s exposed to a whole lot of music I’m not and I consider him a tastemaker for Canadian indie rock.
It’s a bummer to think that offering one big music file is probably completely illegal, and kind of loses some functionality in the whole deal. It’d be cool if there was a way, or an app (there probably is), that let you share playlists like this, including the between track banter, as downloadable mp3s.
I love Steven’s whole series, and that the internet makes it possible for me to find this stuff. This is what radio used to be like, where DJs dug deep to find cool music you’d never find on your own, but that industry’s gone completely bezerk with payola and record label deals and FCC regs on what you can play.
