Program feeds are: All Things Considered, Morning Edition, Day to Day, Talk of the Nation, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, News and Notes, Tell Me More, Weekend Edition (both Saturday and Sunday), World CafĂ©, and From the Top. There are also topic feeds (for instance, authors, books, environment, music—various types, politics, sports, etc.) and links to feeds from selected member stations. What a great resource!

Also from NPR is NPR Music, “a free, multi-genre Web site that presents the best of public radio music.” It is a collaboration with 12 public radio stations. They also have a Flash-based media player. Sections include live concerts, studio sessions, interviews and profiles, and song of the day. You can also browse by artist or limit yourself to just one genre (rock/pop/folk, classical, jazz & blues, world, and urban).

There’s more, too. Subscribe to one of their music newsletters: Song of the Day, Music Notes, and All Songs Considered.
