Discovering New Music

One of the things I love about working at WHYR is discovering new music. There is so much good music out there just waiting to get in your ears. Just yesterday, I was going through the mail and we received a Cajun music CD from a record label in Michigan.

Every week, I check the trade magazines for new singles. Then, I check the festival circuit to see who has been added to the mix so I can listen to that. After that, I check to see who is coming to the region to see if there are bands that I need to know. This is all to find a few great bands a week to share with you.

I’d like for WHYR to be a place for music discovery. If you are a music lover, how do you discover music? Do you read Pitchfork? Do you wait to see what your friends recommend? Let us know.
