#362 with Kurt Morris: Razorcake Podcast

I’ve lived in Boston since 2008. I moved here for grad school having never visited, but quickly grew to love it. I didn’t know if I would stay after I finished school, but it’s been almost five years since graduating and I’m still here, so it has certainly endeared itself to me. There’s a lot of history and culture, as well as smart, innovative, progressive people. I love that there is public transit, green space, a good airport, and an awesome public library (just to name a few random things). I love that there’s always stuff to do—since I’ve arrived I don’t think I’ve ever said “I’m bored.”

I’ve found some songs from Boston-area bands in my collection and put them together for what I believe gives a pretty good range of the past and present Boston sound. I know I’m missing a ton, but these are just some of my favorites.
