#29 - St. Jean Baptiste Podcast

12/13/2015
More
I hope everyone is having a wonderful St. Jean Baptiste weekend! I had a fun time finding tracks for this podcast, and there's a little bit of every genre in the show this week.

#30 - Summertime

12/13/2015
More
Hopefully the fan I had on to cool down the "studio" didn't cause too much background noise. I had a fun time putting together this playlist, and listening as I recorded. I guess if you read the track listing, the "secret cover song" won't be so secret!

#31 - The Dog Days of Summer

12/13/2015
More
Your eyes are not lying! I'm going away this weekend, so I thought I would release the podcast a few days early. It's a little long this time around, but since it's been three weeks since the last episode, I figured nobody will mind! Some great music in there, starting off hard and fast and ending on a similarly strong note. Except for one or two songs, everything in the podcast has been featured on the blog in the last three weeks.

#33 - Factorable by 11

12/13/2015
More
It's been two weeks, so that means it's time for a new podcast! I normally get these up on the same Saturday that I record them, but events this weekend that may or may not have had something to do with watching Moneyball and baking an apple crumble served to interfere with those plans. In any case, here is your latest podcast! Savour it, because it may appear in a slightly different format two weeks from now (insert ominous chords here).

#35 - October 22, 2011

12/13/2015
More
No fancy title today, my mind was a little blanked. A couple of notes for this episode before you listen: one, I was trying a new method of recording (that ended up being much less convoluted), so there are going to be a couple of hiccups here and there - especially at the beginning, where my voice is overpowered by the music.

#36 - New Hip Hop and New Features

12/13/2015
More
Podcast 36 features lots of new hip hop, plus a new feature debuting! It's called "Five Minutes On" and this week is reviewing His Girl Friday (1940). Plus there's a new theme (based on TenPenny Joke's song "Sense"), and a few new elements thrown in that may or may not have come across properly. At any rate, I fixed the microphone problem from #35.

#37 - Battling Back a Cold

12/13/2015
More
Welcome to another podcast! I was afraid I might not be able to talk as much for this episode because of a cold, but luckily it subsided long enough so that I wasn't interrupted every few seconds by coughing. The new release section is a bit light on music, but overall there's some great stuff this week.

#38 - Looking Forward, Looking Back

12/13/2015
More
Welcome to the first of the last two podcasts for 2011! Lots of great stuff this week, with new releases in the first segment and the last segment filled with some of my old favourites from 2011. Plus, a special timely cover to end off the podcast.

Duration: 00:31:12


#39 - The Penultimate Edition

12/13/2015
More
Penultimate in the sense that this is the second-last podcast for 2011! I have some new tracks from 2011 (plus one FROM THE FUTURE aka January 2012 release from AF Music), and some more favourites from 2011 podcasts. I'm still undecided re: what to do for the December 31st podcast, but I have a couple of weeks to figure that out.

#40 - New Year's Eve

12/13/2015
More
Unfortunately, no special podcast planned - just a list of songs I haven't played in a long time. It's also a short podcast, clocking in at under 25 minutes!

Duration: 00:23:27


#41 - Big Wilson River, We Used to Exist, MUTE

12/13/2015
More
The first podcast of 2012! I switched things up a bit from the last regular podcast, and I think things will continue this way for a while. I mention in the podcast that I'm going to try to throw a few more features from time to time; but more on that another time.

Duration: 00:28:31


#42 - NHL All-Star Weekend

12/13/2015
More
It's the NHL All-Star weekend here in Ottawa, and I am excited! I don't normally worry very much about things like making sure I record the skills competition if I'm going to be out for the night (like tonight), or getting HD for this very occasion, but it's in my home town and I have been waiting for this for a long time. Too long. Lots of great music today, plus some All-Star trivia! (Trivia courtesy Liam McGuire/Slam Sports)

#43 - Valentine's Day / Hockey Day in Canada

12/13/2015
More
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so I picked out a few tracks that had that loving sort of feeling. Also some disco songs. PLUS I have some things to say about Hockey Day in Canada, which is today (February 11, 2012), starting at 2PM EST. And finally, a return to the “cover song at the end of the podcast”.

#44 - Cleaning Out the Inbox

12/13/2015
More
Warning! This podcast is an hour in length - in other words, double the usual length. You may want to set aside some time to listen to the podcast. But don't worry, the music is excellent. It's full of stuff I've neglected to listen to over the last little while, and I've put together a pretty sweet mix.

#45 - The United93, Barreracudas

12/13/2015
More
A short podcast to follow-up the ridiculously long 'cast from two weeks ago. I had some issues with Jamendo when it came time to put the podcast together, so a couple of artists had repeat songs. If you want to check out the artists I would have played, links will follow the playlist.

#46 - Streets of Hastings Interview

12/13/2015
More
The bulk of this podcast is devoted to an interview I did with Rockland band Streets of Hastings (http://www.streetsofhastings.com), so I didn't put a lot of effort into picking the rest of the music.

#47 - Unicycles

12/13/2015
More
A bit of a laid-back podcast, I decided to talk a little bit about unicycles. I don't have much of an intro either - enjoy the podcast!

Duration: 00:28:21


#48 - Larisa & The Raindoggs, Sean T. Wright, and Streets of Hastings

12/13/2015
More
Time for another podcast! It feels like it's been a long time since I've released anything, and in a way, it has. While I was pretty pleased with the interview with Streets of Hastings, I haven't been very impressed with the quality of the podcasts I've released since then. I've got a more positive outlook now, so upwards and onwards as they say. Great music selection today, featuring new releases from Jamendo.com plus an awesome cover track to cap things off. Download and enjoy!

#49 - Cinco de Mayo

12/13/2015
More
Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone! It's everybody's favourite Mexican holiday, because it's fun to pronounce. Today's podcast is actually NOT themed around this holiday, but it was too convenient to pass up for a name. Plenty of great stuff in this week's podcast, with songs coming from Jamendo, the Free Music Archive, and Wired.

#50 - Just Another Milestone

12/12/2015
More
I finally made it to #50! I didn't get the chance to plan anything special - we'll leave that for number 100. In the show today: songs pulled from Mike's last ASR show; new tracks from Swedish pop bands; a demo from Brad Sucks; and a really cool cover of a Robert Palmer track. Plus I instituted a new rule for the show - a 30-minute hard time limit. I hope it makes for a tighter podcast. Hope you enjoy it!
