Music podcast with eclectic selection?
March 26, 2012 6:55 PM Subscribe
I like to listen to a wide variety of music: classical, rock, jazz, instrumental metal, folk, video game, rap — whatever catches my ear. I also like listening to podcasts. Unfortunately, most of the music podcasts I've seen only cover music in a single genre, often with an emphasis on newer music. I'd like to find a podcast that a) spans genres and eras in a single show, and b) isn't afraid to play popular music. Does such a podcast exist? Super bonus points if there's some commentary about history and context, so that I can learn something while I listen.

The closest I've been able to find is Aerostat
, hosted by Russian rock legend Boris Grebenshchikov. It's pretty great, but despite its variety, it still gravitates towards lesser-known progressive rock from the 60's and 70's.
