Can you feel it?

Tuesday, November 30th, 2004

Ok, so maybe not a full-blown buzz, but we’re getting some nice reaction to the first show. Thanks for your comments & emails, we’ll respond to them during the next show.

Special thanks to podcat for including our show on his Best of podcasting show for Nov 27th. Also a big *boinnnngggg* to Adam Curry for featuring our promo on Nov 30th’s Daily Source Code.

Some people have been asking about our background music, which I meant to include in the production notes, but forgot. The wonderful jazzy piano tune is called A Casual Emergency by Paul Reller, and it’s available on open source audio . Check out that collection, there’s all kinds of wierd & wonderful audio out there. As for the other music, I wish I could tell you. It’s from a cd I have that simply says “Prod. Music-1”.. I think it may be from a recording studio, or radio station, and I probably won’t use it again since I don’t know if we have clearance to use it.

We’re already planning the next show, scheduled for Dec 5th, and we’re lining up the permissions to play you some good non-RIAA tunes..

Wahoo! Show 1 is done!

Here it is: RSS or MP3 16959488 bytes

Skimpy production notes, no OPML for now…

This week’s show (~ 17 minutes):

First one’s always the hardest, but I’m pretty happy with how it came out. AJ & I last did radio work together in 1992, so it was nice to be working together again. We had a few pints and a good time, which is really what we set out to do.

Hope you like the show, please let us know! We have a comment line (Drew’s idea <- we credit stuff) and there’s here or email : (bob or aj) .

Still moving ahead

More stuff done, we’re almost there!

So now, our RSS feed is ready… Seems like it’s time to produce some content!!

This would be a good time to give a nod to those who are unknowingly making this possible, thanks for your efforts, getting me hooked on podcasts and for freely sharing your knowledge. We aren’t at show 1 yet, and we couldn’t have gone even this far without your efforts!

Ok, enough of my yacking, I’ve got some show prep to do..

T-minus a bunch of days to show #1..

Well… Let’s see here… What’s done so far…

  • got the (cheap) domain
  • webspace
  • the blog is set up
  • Recording setup almost done
  • Intro created – liked how that came out
  • a few sweepers done, though I don’t really like them
  • the software is installed and tested, though I’d love to see a SoundFlower for PC.. audio routing through software is cool

Let’s see if I’ve planned this right, in my wee mind, I think what’s left is..

  • Set up the RSS feed.. Hi XML? This is Bob, we don’t know each other yet, but I’m sure we’ll get along…
  • Record the pilot (whole bunch o’ steps in there..)
  • mix & produce
  • upload
  • test
  • Get AJ’s approval, or make him learn to accept what I’ve done
  • Bask in the glory that is podcasting
