NPR + iTunes = free concerts

This might have already been common knowledge for others, but today I discovered that iTunes has free downloads of live concerts from the All Songs Considered NPR program.

I am currently listening to Radiohead's show from August 28th in Santa Barbara and giving the Internet a virtual chest bump.

Other concerts downloaded:

Animal Collective
Arcade Fire
Arctic Monkeys
Ben Gibbard (of Death Cab for Cutie)
Fleet Foxes
French Kicks
The Good, The Bad, & The Queen
Iron & Wine
The New Pornographers
The Raconteurs
Swell Season
Yeah Yeah Yeahs

My plane and train rides in Germany will be spent listening to concerts and learning useful German phrases courtesy of Rick Steves.

Hat jemand gefurtz? Did someone fart?

Sie sind ein Engel, von Gott gesandt. You are an angel from God.

Ich habe keine Krankheiten. I have no diseases.

Iche habe viele Krankheiten. I have many diseases.

Ich habe mein Geld/meine Handtasche/meine Brieftasche/meinen Glauben an die Menschheit verloren. I've lost my money/my purse/my wallet/my faith in humankind.
