I’m looking to get recommendations on podsafe music podcasts.

I’m looking for either a wide variety of shows or shows that play a wide variety of music. Bonus points for no or minimal vocals, as I’m hoping to use this as research for interstitial music and underscoring on a podcast of my own. Electronica would be appropriate to the nature and themes of the cast, but I’m open to anything really. Basically, I’m looking for digest style podsafe music casts that are easy to listen to, thoughtfully produced, and have a wide variety of non-vocal selections. (I can totally tolerate some vocal choices occasionally for interstitial type stuff rather than underscoring so if there's a great one that has vocal style music I can deal).

For those who might not be familiar with the term podsafe:
"Podsafe is a term created in the podcasting community to refer to any work which, through its licensing, specifically allows the use of the work in podcasting, regardless of restrictions the same work might have in other realms. For example, a song may be legal to use in podcasts, but may need to be purchased or have royalties paid for over-the-air radio use, television use, and possibly even personal use."

Dave's Lounge is a great downtempo electronica show. A lot of the artists he features are podsafe, if not his whole show. Plus he throws out website recommendations all the time for finding more of the same kind of music.
