A Little Bit of This/A Little Bit of That
So I had a conversation with a friend of mine last week about the podcast, and he said something very interesting to me. He said he really liked the “Mixtape” episode, because even if he didn’t like one of the bands, he knew something else would be next.
I like hearing feedback on ways to improve the podcast, and this bit of information was good for more reasons than one.
Many times, the music I get does not come with much back story. I had one friend, who I know well, give me the years his old band was together, and then ask me if that sounded right. Hell, I can barely remember some of my own bands’ time together.
So I’m changing the show.
Don’t get me wrong, when I do get all the information I would like to have, I will still do episodes that feature one particular band. My goal has always been to archive and collect as much information about bands as possible, especially before everyone forgets and all is lost.
However, the music itself remains the highest priority. Changing the format allows me to use more songs from individual bands in various episodes, instead of limiting them to three or four in one episode. It also makes it easier to use music I find at Goodwill, Half Price Books, and other stores that sell used CDs. You know those clearance, $1 CDs that might be really terrible or could be amazing? When I buy those, it’s like shooting dice, because I might have just wasted a dollar or found something great.
So this week’s podcast will feature music from 4 bands:
Bloodshot Pyramid – Newborn Addiction
Turbodwarf – Wornout Soul
Who Rides The Tiger – Hollywood Hates You
Strong Rock – Bitch Fiesta
