Jan 032010

Having done a few months on Post Apoc Radio inside the MMO Fallen Earth, I’ve come to realize that I desperately miss DJing. As such, after looking very closely at the projects I’ve been doing, the time they take, and what I’d really like to do with 2010, I’ve opted to change a few things around. Instead of broadcasting on Post Apoc Radio, I’m opting to channel my love of sharing music with folks into a 30 (or so) minute podcast that will showcase interesting music you may not have heard.

Since I’d really rather like to stay on the outside of a jail cell, and as I don’t have insane amounts of money for ASCAP/etc. licensing (or civil fees for using that music without licenses) I’ll be doing things a bit differently. The music I’ll be using will primarily be bands that are either releasing under Creative Commons licenses, or bands that I am able to get written permission to feature. Also, to save confusion: if a show is all CC-licensed music, I’ll release that episode under Creative Commons as well. Obviously, if I get a piece that is under a special written license, I’ll point the song out in the show notes so nobody gets in trouble, and of course it means that show will not be released under a CC license.

I already have a handful of shows planned out. The first will start in more of my traditional vein: an industrial dance/alternative feel. The ones after that? Well, I won’t spoil the surprise as to the themes and bands. The important things to know about me are:

  • I listen to just about everything with the primary exception of gangsta rap
  • I’m really fond of audio silliness, covers, and other miscellaneous tidbits.

For now, best to focus on getting the outlines in place and getting this site set up. Soon, however, I shall start recording and releasing the podcasts. I hope you’ll listen in!
