How To Get 50 Free Songs a Month
Podcasting may have not tipped the point like blogging has, but its significance and importance will last long. And to insure proper service to yourself in this day and age, you need to jump on the bandwagon and at least grab the daily free music offered to you.
iTunes Store users know that every Tuesday brings a free song to your collection. How would you like an additional 10 songs a week?
Thanks to Seattle's KEXP and our home-grown Santa Monica-based KCRW, 10 free songs a week is but a few clicks away. Just in the last month we've scored music from The Shins, Honeycut, Moby, John Tejada, Los Abandoned, Tom Waits, Badly Drawn Boy and others from KCRW's "Today's Top Tune". KEXP's edgier and more underground collection from their "Song of the Day" will make you a fan of many new bands.
After all, you deserve it. The easiest way is to go to the iTunes store and search for KCRW and KEXP under podcasts. Once there, hit subscribe and voila!
