Default online music

Does anyone know of any sites where you can listen to samples of music?
I need to find more artists and styles, i am open to almost anything, but how do you find new stuff you like?
I say new, it could have been recorded 100's of years ago for all i care.
All my friends have quite narrow music tastes, theres never anything good on the radio/tv, so how do you find new stuff to listen too?

The ones I know: ebay.com, allmusic.com. The latter might need registration.

for classical www.amazon.com usually has snippets of the recordings that they sell.

for operatic materials the Metropolitan Opera (www.metopera.org) has an enormous archive on their website -- from the earliest days of recording.

Doh! ebay.com!? What's there to listen to?

Amazon's great. Though I haven't used it myself, I believe allmusic is just as good. Should give you access to more music than you can shake an uzi at, in 30-60 second samples.

Hi
I like to use steaming audio from online radio stations. Can search archives but bit rate is not as good as a live stream. Video can be had as well esp on KCRW.com "morning becomes eclectic" show. If I like it, I record using loopback on PC souncard, edit then, burn to CD.
Not really sure if your taste is close to me but...

the last I recorded was Calexico and Gram Rabbit

I like to listen to cbc radio 3
It's one of the three Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on line radio stations.
You can listen in radio mode or create your own playlist or listen to others

I have what I think is a pretty good playlist right now mostly a alternative rock, country selection, but I change it from time to time.

Here is the site

http://radio3.cbc.ca/

You will be in radio mode when you start off, To listen to a playlist click on user playlists
and you'll see some there or you can enter okmrbh in the search box and listen to mine.

* Be sure to set the quality @ 128k
Enjoy!

" ... Be sure to set the quality @ 128k ..."

Good idea. You might also just get a feel for other internet radio feeds that are built into iTunes = the free download. About half of these are 96K or better, about 20% are 128K or better.



I'm listening to classical internat radio (one of about a dozen = 96K or better), but they are playing @ 44.1K (CD quality), so I'll probably switch as sooin as Ludvic Von finishes up ...

I'll second that one. SKY.FM classical and flamenco guitar is one of my favorites. Some of the stations play the same stuff too frequently though. Plus some have ads you have to sit and wait through unless you pony up the dough for a "commercial free listening experience."
