- Radio Lab's Jab Abumrad may not be the only genius working in public radio, but he's certainly the only one to win a 2011 'Genius Grant' from the MacArthur Foundation this year - Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and Nieman Journalism Lab all recognized the accomplishment.

- Athens, Ga., locals The Olivia Tremor Control are back from a long hiatus, and NPR Music is streaming last Wednesday's show at Le Poisson Rouge in New York. The recording made it into the Brooklyn Vegan's review of the concert, and Robin Hilton's interview with band member Will Cullen Hart caught the attention of The Village Voice.

- Gothamist announced NPR Music's live steam from Wilco's Merriweather Post Pavilion concert, which took place last night.
