The group to find interesting journals on Last.fm

Welcome to "Interesting journals on Last.fm", the library of Last.fm

Here you will find interesting journals, separated in specific sections, that might otherwise not get noticed. Please feel free to recommend interesting journals (even if they're not your own) to add. We'll read through them and if they pass muster they'll get added. For now all the journals will be shown on this overview but once we have enough content they will get divided into separate threads (maybe there will even be a rant-section ^_^).

Disclaimer: All the opinions stated in the journals are not necessarily mine (or any of the group's members), so if you have a different opinion please use the comment-box on that journal to express them.

The categories are:

    @johnTMcNeill: As long as it's a good read I'll add it, anything's better then those "bands I've seen live"-journals. @temujin1234: Added and also "Mix Radio - Is it any good?" since I never use Last.fm's radio ^_^

    This list of radio urls is a bit old (no mix radio, which is what I was looking for when I found it) but still useful.

    sorry- I got all excited then realized that you were talking about journals that are discussing Lastfm and music. I have many of those, but I kinda wander off the reservation and into unknown territory sometimes- I have an opinion on just about everything....ya'll carry on...:)

    Thanks, for now it needs more content so I'm working hard on that (going through people journals and reading them takes a lot of time). These are the ones I had constantly open and didn't just want to add them to my bookmarks otherwise I'd just forget about them.

    Thanks for adding mine. I'll be sure to pass on good journals as I find them. :)
