Originally founded in Winter 2002, but left for dead for years, Ben Loves Music was re-founded in April 2004 as a way for the to-be university grad to share music with his friends even after leaving his university town and moving home. Sputtering along at about 100 hits a day for a while, it took a mention in a post and a direct link from Copy, Right? to get some major attention, getting 2,000 hits in one day. Since then, there has been a steady stream of visitors frequenting the site for a mix of punk, hip-hop, indie, mash-ups, and pop music.
Ben Cohen is a DJ/Editor living in Cambridge, MA. He's very smart.
