Critic Rating

A collection of the greatest music stories never told. Join Lost Notes for Bent By Nature , a new 10-part documentary series and digital archive about the most influential American DJ you've never heard of. Deirdre O’Donoghue was a vital force in the musical underground of the 1980s. Countless artists crammed into her studio to perform live on her late-night show, “SNAP!” on KCRW. And after 40 years, those legendary sessions will be heard again. Join Michael Stipe, Henry Rollins, Julian Cope, and more for a sound-packed series from the producers of Lost Notes and Unfictional transporting you to the heyday of ‘80...

Nicholas Quah • Vulture Nov 10, 2021

"(Season: Snap!) Bent by Nature is a family affair in many ways, one that carries the slight air of an overdue wake. Even if SNAP! means little to you, there’s a lot here about the texture, legacy, and influence of late-night radio to warrant your attention."

"Let Wonder be your gateway into Lost Notes: 1980, an expansive series about a decade that shaped and defined the generations of music that followed it."

"It’s also a bit difficult for me to figure out what — outside of that general description — the podcast is trying to accomplish. But maybe that broadness is intentional. I mean, look at my own podcast and how broad my concept is. If you like music journalism, it’s definitely worth a listen — but more in a “dip your toes in and sample what interests you” more than “inhale the whole series”."

"It might yet be impossible to write about music without always returning to the forces outside of it that shape its production. Nevertheless, as a social history of marginalization at a particular moment in music history, Lost Notes is an unqualified success. You really ought to listen to it."
