Modern Kicks

Tired of hearing the same old junk?  Too impatient to scroll through the dozen RSS feeds of the mp3 blogs you follow to find one song you might enjoy?  Wish there was a place that would point out some of the best new music for you?

Well... put down that magic lamp, kiddo -- because your wish has already been granted!  Listen to Modern Kicks on KFAI!

Each week host Sean Hansen digs through the murkiest corners of the Internet to find you some of the best new music from new artists on small to relativately-small labels for you to enjoy -- from garage rock to power pop to whatever!


If it's worth hearing, then you'll hear it first -- right here on Modern Kicks!
