LAUNCHcast personal radio (now killed by CBS).
I think it was LAUNCHcast that turned me on to Stacey Kent's 2001 Dreamsville album and - man - Did I feel I was in on something good?! If you're not familiar with the release, I strongly suggest checking-out You're Looking At Me, Hushabye Mountain, I've Got a Crush on You and Dreamsville.

During 2006 she became streamable and in July I tagged her as lesser known yet streamable artists which, by then prevailing standards, would've meant that she had less than 10K listeners…
