Q's List of 100 Places To Find Music Online

In its March issue, the British Q magazine lists its "100 Best Places To Get Free Music." Interestingly, the magazine includes podcasts, streaming radio stations, and other music websites along with music blogs. The list is a bit Anglo-centric, but that is to be expected. The big omission (from my perspective) is the Live Music Archive, which made my A to Z Guide to Online Music Downloads almost two years ago.

Here is Q's list, feel free to list overlooked (and deserving) sites in the comments (the bold headings are from the magazine):
