Q: How do you find music for your programs?
I still listen to the radio a bunch; KCRW, BBC Radio 1 & WFMU. One of my favorite shows on WFMU is called The Duane Train by my good friend and Other Music alum, Duane Harriott. I always make sure to check out Other Music’s update, they have great taste. It’s such an eclectic selection with just the right amount of weird. Soundcloud is great too, lots of good DJ mixes. Of course, I still check out iTunes once a week. Finally, you can always count on certain labels to put out good music. Some of my favorites: Stones Throw, Jagjaguwar, Now&Again, Modular, Numero Group, Beggars, BBE, SoulJazz, and Innovative Leisure to name a few.
