@corrective unconscious,

Yes. You are correct. There is sometimes a full day lag between getting the playlist and audio up after the show has aired. We are just a staff of one, and these processes of playlist-generating and audio uploading are not automated to the degree that we wish we could offer.

Can you not wait a day for the playlist and streaming content? Or did you not look around the "New Sounds" archives ever to see there is a one to two day lag? Or do you think it should somehow be instantaneous?

Greg, you can find it on iTunes. Summertime by Kat Edmonson. It is extraordinary.

And yes please, can we have a full playlist for the show?
