In the late 90s in Portland, Oregon, there was an AM radio program called the Saturday Morning Rock Show (if I'm remembering right) on (maybe) 1010 AM. Ran for 3-4 hours or so.

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. [more inside]

I've been trying to help him find it, but have had no luck. Anybody? [more inside]

Consumer tech question: looking for an AM/FM radio that can dock an iPhone 4 that is also copacetic with Pandora and other music apps. The Crosley iSolo looked good, but some reviews suggest you can't use music apps, which is a deal-breaker. Clock, etc. unimportant and, aesthetically, an old-school look and feel would be ideal (i.e., nothing too super-mod looking). Any suggestions, MeFites?

If an alien located on a planet 100 light years from here was to switch on a big, multi-frequency radio receiver, and record all the noises coming from outer space for the next hundred years, on all frequencies, how many soap operas, advertisements and new broadcasts would they pick up from Earth?

Over time, as the number of Earth transmissions increases exponentially, would the alien pick up a cacophony or a damp fizzle? [more inside]

I tried getting that cd from interlibrary loan to no avail. Does anybody know where else it might be lurking?
