I honestly don't know how I feel about this Pink Floyd news. Sure, it'll be interesting to hear it and it's a nice tribute to Wright, but without Waters it's not what I consider Pink Floyd.

You guys do horror music news? I've been on this site for years and never knew that. You sure make it hard to find. How do I get to it from the homepage? I must say most of it is better kept out of the main news feed though.

We're kind of hit or miss with the music news. We've tried covering it more extensively over the years, but people haven't responded much. The Radio 66.6 column goes up every Tuesday though (it used to be Mondays, but it kept getting bumped off the home page so quickly that we moved it). You can always look here or here to see the little bit of music coverage we do manage to get up.
