Emily’s Team Pick: Insomnia Radio

Do you want to listen to new music but don’t know how to find it? Insomnia Radio is really good for that. They post a new song every day, usually by underground indie artists. I just put them in my google reader and that way I remember to check them every day. It’s a great way to discover new bands, and if you don’t like the song, just turn it off and wait for tomorrow! They also seem to have a bunch of Insomnia Radio: Area shows, like Insomnia Radio: New York, or Insomnia Radio: UK, but I’m not too sure what that’s all about to be honest.

Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.

  1. why did i think insomnia radio “with 1 new song per day” was literally a station that played one song a day in order to cure peoples insomnia..

    • I thought that, too! When I clicked on the link I was so confused about why a sleep-inducing song didn’t immediately start playing.

  2. good choice. I like! I also like ex1065.com thank god 4 the opportunity 2 listen online 2 so many different radiostations, cause my local stations R so in2 that mainstream! what is not good! switch the channels and U hear the same song on every local station! I mean, c’mon….thats not what I signed up 4! and I live in a country where we have 2 pay 2 listen 2 the public radio radiostations! but we R not allowed 2 suggest the music we like 2 hear. and the privat radio-stations act like the public stations. but I think, good music will find their way. through blogs; mouth 2 mouth; suggestions from friends; some music is 2 good 4 format radio.
