If you’re on a mac and are familiar w/ the Hype Machine, Peel is a great app. for you. The interface is very similar to iTunes and plays the muzak files from your favourite blogs. If you like the song, there’s the ability to download it. What is nice about Peel is that you can skim a lot of muzak faster than if you used the player from Hype (and downloading is quicker since you don’t have to go to the site too). If there’s a drawback, it’s that you need to know which blogs have the muzak and enter the url once. Since I’ve only been using Peel for a day, there’s a lot of going back and fourth w/ Hype to figure out which blogs to add.
and for those PC users out there, this is my new fav. webcast: NETMUSIQUE Webcasts “The Home of House”
