I realized that I have enough feedback and responses to For the Sake of the Song to prepare a feedback episode, so here goes.
K7 Day on March 17 was a resounding success. I sent out voice messages to about 11 podcasts, and I received 3 voicemail messages: 1 for a Catholic Canadian and two which I’ll play here. Just a reminder that tomorrow is March K27. Take 7 minutes to send some voice feedback to a podcaster or two. K7 Day was also featured on the Canadian Podcast Buffet. Thanks Mark and Bob.
Check out the K7 Day group on Facebook. Join the group and remember to add to the conversation by leaving a message for a podcaster on the 7th, 17th and 27th of the month. P.S. my K7 feedback number is 206-337-0611 . I am hoping that this meme will catch on as the months go by.
A few episodes back, I featured an interview with Tom Slatter. Apparently that interview inspired Tom to think about why he started the Songwright blog and podcast. Here is Songwright – A Manifesto (kind of) « Songwright. I’m flattered to have inspired a manifesto– sort of.
Voice Feedback from: John Meadows of the exceptional On the Log podcast. Drew Beatty also left a voice message.
I recieved an email from Stevie Z from The Sieve recommending that I check out Robbie Hancock. I will definitely do that.
I got another email recommendation from Maria Johnson suggesting that I interview Joe Tunon (holymoly.net). I’ve done that and it’s scheduled for release on June 20. I love getting guest recommendations from my listeners. I figure that if someone likes another person’s songwriting enough to recommend them, then I should check that writer out. Thus far I’ve done about 4 shows based on listener recommendations. Keep them coming.
My daughter has taken to writing lovely songs. I have a recording of her singing Alley Cat.
For the Sake of the Song and A Catholic Canadian are finally available on the Itunes Music Store. It took me some time to get around to it because there is no Itunes client for linux and in order to submit a podcast, you have to have an Itunes account which requires that you give Apple a credit card number. Don’t get me started on that.
As always, you can leave comments on the blog, send me an email to ductapeguy at hotmail dot com, send me a voice feedback at 206-337-0611, or join the For The Sake of the Song Podcast group on Facebook.
