     100 Free Songs?!! Yes, each year NPR selects a song from each of 100 of the artists headed to Austin for South by Southwest (SXSW). This year’s list does not disappoint. A complete list is included at the bottom of this post. To the credit of NPR many genres are represented.

     There are four options in listening to the music.

        3. Until March 31, the 100 songs can be downloaded in a bulk ZIP file. The link is available at
