National Public Radiohead

I really like NPR’s “All Songs Considered” and their “Live In Concert” podcast.

Right now you can listen to (and if you subscribe to the podcast: download) the show Radiohead gave at the end of their US tour on August 28th in Santa Barbara, CA.

Bob Boilen, who chose Radiohead over Barack Obama on that day, writes:

When I think of the best concerts I’ve seen, I always flash back to Pink Floyd in early 1972. […]

Radiohead’s show at the Santa Barbara Bowl came as close for musicianship and creativity as any show I’ve seen in 37 years. I’ve seen a lot of shows.

Even though I didn’t like Radiohead’s latest album “In Rainbows” that much, I’m already impressed by what was (amongst others) on the set list: “There There”, “Talk Show Host”, “Morning Bell”, “No Surprises”, “The Bends”, “Karma Police”, “Paranoid Android”, “Everything in Its Right Place”, “Lucky” and – the grand finale after more than two hours of songs – “Idioteque”.
