Many people rely on radio apps to listen to music or news on their iOS device when they are on the go. This doesn’t include apps like the Amazon Cloud Player app which plays only music you own. These apps are dedicated to bringing you awesomeness, one tune at a time. Some apps we’ve talked about here at The Pink C before include TuneIn radio and Stitcher. We won’t cover those in depth again here but they are potentially good apps to pick from and are listed below. All apps listed here are free to download and use. Extra perks might cost money. Hope you find something great to use to keep you going day to day!

Hey HarriMac! What podcasts are you listening to?!

Media gets many of us through our days. Whether it’s music, videos, news, or podcasts of all three, something has to come out when you hit play. This is HarriMac’s current podcast list. Most are available directly through iTunes if that’s your player of choice (or force). Otherwise you can Google or Yahoo! or whatever you use to find the URL to import to a player. A few have been discontinued but I have kept copies of old podcasts such as Stu Huck’s Jazz on a Thursday Night podcast. The radio show still exists but they no longer produce it for podcasts. It was a fave of Ellie!

Why Kanye West’s Outburst Matters

US-VMA-KANYE-20090913EVUnless you’ve been living in a cave, you know that Kanye West stole the show during the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) Sunday night by grabbing to mic from Taylor Swift and stating that Beyonce should have won best female video of the year.

I was watching the show, thought it was all staged until I checked Twitter and Facebook – and realized, along with millions of other people, that this was not a joke. Kanye West really did smash this young artists’ heart with his boot heel.

In my last post, I wrote about the death of Michael Jackson, and noted some of my favorite songs.

I live in Harlem and have been avoiding going down to the Apollo since Thursday – but I trekked down this afternoon to see what was going on.

Michael Jackson dies at age 50

The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, died at age 50 today. I have been a fan for as long as I can remember – from his Jackson 5 days to present. Despite the controversy and no recent records in the last few years, Michael still invoked strong emotions in people from all around the world. His songs spoke to many of us through puberty, young adulthood and into our middle age. Some of us literally grew up with Michael – while others of us caught the last 30 years of his career and life – and still value him as not just the “King of Pop” but a storyteller for the ages. MJstar My favorite Michael Jackson songs are: PYT (Pretty Young Thing), You Rock My World, Don’t Stop ’til You Get Enough and Heaven Can Wait. What are yours? Any great memories of the King of Pop?
