Live Ledge #257: Forgotten Treasures

I've stated a few times on recent shows that I'm in the long, boring process of cleaning up my iTunes. Of course, Apple doesn't help much in these kinds of activities, as iTunes becomes clunkier and clunkier every year. As a great tweet recently stated, it's like Apple actively finds the people who care the least about music to design their music app.

Oh well. I know that will never get better, and don't get me started on the lack of headphone jacks on the new iPhones. So I've spent a lot of recent time attempting to clean up my music files. I've been deleting any duplicate albums, fixing a few tags, and anything else that could help me find some room on the crowded external hard drive(s) I use to store my music.

I've made it to the "R's", and one of the great things about this project is that I'm discovering bands, albums, and songs that I've completely forgot about. There's plenty of records that I've downloaded and added to my library but have only sampled a few tracks. Or they received a lot of initial play but have gotten lost in the shuffle in the last few years.

Tonight's show gathers a bunch of these types of tunes. To give you an example of just how forgetful I am, this show only features forgotten material fro the letters N-P. I guess it's safe to say tonight is the first in a series of broadcasts of this sort.

Like always, grab this from the usual sources - iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and the others. And maybe leave me a nice little review on iTunes if you enjoy this little show. Or...
