Alistair Bishop-Hotrod Cadets Interview

Tartan Podcast has provided this link for interview(.wmv file) with Hotrod Cadets leader and song-writer, Alistair Bishop. In case you don't know, the Cadets are one of the best Glasgow, Scotland bands on the scene today. Alsistair is very podcasting/podcaster friendly and really has a good grasp of the role of podcasting. He is very articulate and passionate about his music. He is not a full-time performer yet. He works a day job to support his wife and 2 children, but that in no way diminishes the professional sound of the Cadets music. Please make sure to stop by the Tartan Podcast and Hotrod Cadet sites and tell them the Bluesman sent you.

If you dig the tunes-please buy the CDs these artists are really talented and hard working! Please also tell them you heard their music on this show.

Doing A Bang Up Job

I mentioned previously that I have a blogging buddy from NOLA that was incommunicado until last week. He posted on his blog: Bang Up Job (a fine mp3 music blog site that I've benefited tremendously from) last weekend letting everyone know he and his family were ok, minus electricity.

Then I didn't hear from him again until today-electricity is back on(still no internet service) and some small holes in his roof with a lot of debris around the house(for slide show). He is very fortunate-his family is ok and house sustained minor damage-basically got away with a mild disruption to his life. This I'm ecstatic about-but how about all the others who didn't fair as well or are much worse? For them please respond to the Red Cross banner on this site and do what you can.

Also, please drop by Bang Up Job and say hi- let Doolittle Good know you care and you're happy he's alive.


Can it be? 50?

The elusive #50 podcast looms on the horizon,hmm. Wander what it will be like? Gee, in podcasting doing 50 shows makes you an Adam or a Curry even, or a veritable P..f.ther! Silliness and puffery aside, we'll have a 50a show up soon-you'll get to meet and know the Disembodied Voices crew a little better. Find out a little more about what makes us tick in this digital age.
