A Podcast?

A few bits about the show while I sit and peruse the music that came in this week…

For those of us who won’t be able to listen to the show when it moves slots in March are there any plans to have make a podcast of weekly highlights available? The streaming archive thingy doesn’t work very well at all unfortunately and isn’t very convenient.

A very decent question Alan. know there are loads of people who have hooked up with us in the last 6 months and who are loath to let the show disappear off into the sunset 🙂 Thanks 🙂

I’ve been wanting to do a podcast for ages but, for the moment, we just don’t have the manpower on our little show. I am going to be talking to some of the people in the RTE techie end to see if there’s anything we can do about this so I will keep you posted here…

The other thing I keep being asked by all concerned who are asking about the new show is “so what are you going to be doing in the afternoon….?” and the answer to that one is simple…

Same as now.

That’s the brief – take us, take what we do and move up the day… And that’s what makes it all so interesting. There will, of course be a bunch of new ideas to go along with all of the random crap we indulge in but it’s still going to be interesting to see if what we do and the music we play will be as well recieved in the afternoon as it seems to have been in the early evening. That’s the fun of all of this :-)))))

  1. Hopefully this will be the last shuffle Mr. Clarke inflicts on us listeners for some time. If this shuffle doesn’t come up with what he’s looking for in terms of listenership profile, someone needs to sack him!

    Re: the podcast… I used to download podcasts of Air America radio which were initially produced by regular listeners to the shows. It’s not beyond the bounds of possibility that there are some benevolent techie type people who could whip up an “unofficial” podcast every week if they were able to get the shows in a format they could bring into Adobe Audition (or similar sound editing tool). With direction from the production team who could pick out what highlights were to be included,it would be a very simple and quick task to chop out all the music and leave the speech parts, insert a little jingle between and publish the whole lot on your own blog with links into itunes. Public service broadcasting can work both ways 🙂
