KCRW’S TODAY’S TOP TUNE
I love that some of my friends look to me to introduce them to new, fun music. Also, I love predicting what songs and bands will make it big in the next few months. But as my street cred increases, I’m worried that someone will find out I’ve been pulling a Martha Stewart. So, here’s my confession: I’ve been doing some insider trading. KCRW’s Today’s Top Tune helps keep audiophiles like me up-to-date (and slightly pretentious) by allowing us to download a hand-picked song every weekday. Not only are the bands obscure, but you’ll have the satisfaction of having known all about them before they hit it big.
THE UNGER REPORT
There’s this terrible myth going around that National Public Radio is boring and humorless. This is ridiculous. My proof is The Unger Report. Want to know how superdelegates are chosen? Want to know find out where you can find a gay car? Or how you can sell baby photos for millions, à la J. Lo? Well, The Unger Report offers satirical answers with the loving self-deprecation of people who run a crucial news/entertainment source, but are still forced to beg to keep it.
THE MIDWEST TEEN SEX SHOW
If you’re looking for “barely legal blondes!!!” and “naughty school girlz!!!” this isn’t for you. But if you want a slightly sarcastic, always hilarious way to forgo talking to your kids about bumping uglies (and anything else they might bump), this is the podcast for you. Of course, a mere podcast is no replacement for that glorious awkwardness of sitting a kid down for “the talk.” The Midwest Teen Sex Show covers topics like The Older Boyfriend, The First Time and Homosexuality. If anything, this podcast is a means to facilitate discussion. Finally, you can enjoy that pained look of “Why me?!” your kid will give you during “the talk.” Good times.
