I'm Felicia, host of 5 Song Set. Not having any real musical talent but wanting to do something with my love of music, I put together this music podcast to showcase some of the fantastic music out there. I'm an American, living with my husband and stuffed Godzilla in St. Petersburg, Russia, where I am trying to learn to speak something other than really awful Russian.
For those who may be wondering where I find this music, here is how it works:
- I go online to the following sites and download everything I can possibly find that relates to a genre, subject or theme that interests me at the moment. I also download anything else that catches my eye.
- I then listen to tons and tons and tons of music.
- I pick at most two songs by the same band and then email them asking for permission to play their music. If I get a positive response, then I will play the song.
Occasionally, I get songs emailed to me by musicians. That is just amazingly wonderful. Occasionally, musicians I know put out a CD, so I ask them if I can play songs. Sometimes, if I am really desperate, I just use Google to search the internet for music. It is much harder, but I do find amazing music that way.
So, that's me. I'd love to hear about you, so drop me an email.
