Since February 2005, National Public Radio has been presenting live concerts that highlight a wide variety of bands, including those that play in the idiom of alt-country and hard-edged classic soul. If one didn’t hear these concerts when they were originally broadcast, they can take advantage of this fine archive offered on this site. The most recent concert offered here (in its entirety) is that of the rather popular group, Belle and Sebastian. All told, there are twenty concerts currently available for users’ listening pleasure. They include performances by James Brown, Sinead O’Connor, Death Cab for Cutie, and Lucinda Williams. As a nice addition, each concert offering also includes links to related coverage from National Public Radio, along with the occasional photo gallery and such.
