One of the best ways to find lost melodies is by using streaming radio by websites such as xpn and npr. Not only are these stations strong supporters of music from years gone by, but they are also stalwarts of modern singer songwriters, avante-garde musicians, and Indie artists. This type of music is not readily available to the majority of Internet surfers via other means such as traditional airwaves. I am a strong supporter of podcasts and streaming music especially in these so-called fringe genres. However, US Congress is in yet another fight against providers of streaming audio, in essence squelching most streaming stations with an increased pay structure.
