After my suggestion of a MeMu podcast
got a few favorable responses, I took it upon myself to cobble last week's tunes into one handy-dandy mp3
. It's presently hosted through podOmatic, if for no other reasons than economics and convenience. Despite not being an audio or tech guy, I think it sounds pretty good, except for my too-quiet wrap-up at the end, which Audacity simply refused to tweak. Hope you enjoy (And sorry about the voice, I tried to keep my nasal prattling to a minimum).
However, after mathowie rightly observed that a weekly compilation is pretty much a gussied up playlist without the versatility, I'm considering a more focused format for future shows. I have a few ideas - themes, covers, "How I Make Music" featurettes by MeMu contributors, etc. What do you think?
I didn't post this to Projects as I'm pretty much making this up as I go along and am still unsure about the podcast's viability. And honestly, if while listening to it you think "This guy doesn't know what he's doing, I should be doing this," feel free to say so. I'm happy to do this as long as people are listening, but won't hesitate to pass the reins over to someone with more knowledge or resources who could bring it to its full potential.
