I distinctly remember doing this one Christmas Eve and being delighted by the cute Christmas skit I heard on an American station.
This website is absolutely blowing my mind. Radio Garden literally lets you cruse the planet, tuning in different stations as you travel. Earlier today I was listening to radio stations in The Philippines where they were playing Bryan Adams.
If you have any interest in radio at all, you're going to fall in love with Radio Garden. I know I have.

Thanks, Kon + Amir. I never heard of you until this morning, but I now know you're veteran record collectors, DJs, and producers. The reason I'm thanking you is because I just discovered Kon + Amir Present: The 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Samples Of All Time.
I have a very serious warning for everyone else before you click through that link. If you have shit to get done today, don't click. Seriously. If you're anything like me, this collection, complete with audio samples, is the best this web has to offer. It's just awesome.
