What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

The Many Men of Martha Manning
The Many Men of Martha Manning I listen to way too many podcasts. And my favorites are the dramas, by which I mean audio performances. I've mentioned Decoder Ring Theatre and Mr. Deity, but there's also the weirdly entertaining (or entertainingly weird) Mustache Rangers, and The Dixie Stenberg Adventure Theater, which both try to recreate some aspect of olde tyme radio, to say nothing of podcasts like the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Case Closed!, which give us the real thing, 40s and 50s radio shows with all the crackles and even some of the commercials. But I have a new favorite, a soap operatic drama in six parts called The Many Men of Martha Manning. What I love about Martha is that it's both over the top and extremely carefully written, performed and produced. Just listen to the "foreign" dialogue and you'll see what I mean; I haven't encountered such subtle absurdity since the Tolkienesque "poetry" of Bored of the Rings. Hmmm... I wonder if anybody's ever considered dramatizing that...
