View Full Version : How many people would be interested in a music podcast?
2nd Mar 11, 4:21 PM
I think it would be pretty cool to have a radio show / podcast about music with lots of different contributors and such. Mainly from fond memories of listening to Bowker's university radio show. However there is a problem, damn legalities mean it would cost perhaps £120 for an annual licence to play music(assuming minimal profits and downloads) which while not really much, I'm basically poor at the moment, so would be looking to spread the costs.
Which is all dependant on there being enough interest to keep it going, both in terms of listening to it and contributing, anyone with a microphone and a headset would be welcome to participate in making it, it could cover the whole forum in terms of news. Anyway this wouldn't happen at all if only a few would listen or help
so any interest please post,may just be a mad idea though :)

I'd love to be on this! :D
If you promise to not spend the hour squeeing over radiohead I will make a small donation.
In other words, I do have some interest.

my worry is it would be fun and great for the first one with the fanfare...then alright for second one...and then no-one would care for third and money had been spent.
I propose test run...instead of actually playing songs we will BEATBOX SONGS
I also want it to be clear that I would want the podcast to give everyone a chance to talk about their music taste, I envision everyone who's on it given a chance to put forward what they want and it be discussed, and also suggestions from listeners.

I'll happily take part in this. :)
I have a decent mic, and will happily put out my favorite tracks. I'm reasonably skint at the moment however, but I'm very interested in this!

Also, very happy to take part.
I'm a former Nightclub DJ (5 years in a Rock/Metal Club C103 (http://www.c103.co.uk/friday.htm))so experience isn't a problem.
However also very skint (long term disabled), which i understand is basically the issue. Still, feel free to contact me. :)

Ok in an attempt to ressurect this idea, I know this is kinda sucky, but how about an attempt at a podcast to discuss tracks floating around the forum atm and can link on youtube to the tracks people want to talk about along within it. In this crazy world posting youtube vids is free but actually playing it in a podcast for if we're lucky 10 people is going to cost £60 per quarter we do it or something. May still be fun, may be pointless :P

As far as I can tell Mixcloud will let us upload a podcast with music included for free.
We just need at least 8 songs and to tag them (dunno how to do that yet)
So..are we looking for 8 songs to feature on our podcast?
If that's all we're after, Tiresias, I can have that put together today (it's 1pm atm).
Just lemme know exactly what you meant by "We just need at least 8 songs and to tag them" and I'm more than happy to help. :)

The tag part confuses me, and no don't think there's any issue getting enough tunes, the idea atm is everyone on the show brings 3 tunes each approx and there is talking segments.
Most importantly on IRC the room #music has now been set up, everyone join it.

I have made one! This is just a test one with no talking, but it works fine :)
Ok, that's pretty cool.
Nice, eclectic selection of music too. :)
So..how do i go about doing this?
Do i edit together songs and spoken sections, record the lot and send it to you?
Is it recorded live etc?
Gimme the technics of it and i'll get right on it..
I'm listening to your test podcast as i type this..
Inspiration is flooding in :D

Seeing as this is now gone from idea to totally amateur reality over here: http://forums.relicnews.com/showthread.php?259190-RelicForums-Podcast-Has-Launched!&p=1045236000#post1045236000 I am closing this thread.
