Posted in Uncategorized on 31 August 2005

The AMP Music Library is a collection of podsafe music that members of AMP use […]

Give Me A Face

I’ve struggled for several months, now, with a good logo for The Roadhouse. I’ve actually gone through four or five, but haven’t been too happy with any of them (short of the sax logo from Bruce at PodcastBunker). What I’d really like is to have a logo that I can stick with for the long-term. […]

Return of the Podjock

After nine days away from home, we’re back in the Little Blue House on the Wetlands. There’s nothing that will clear your head quite like a few days in the fresh air and sunshine of northern Colorado. In my absence, the process of acquiring new music for The Roadhouse rolled on. I got several new […]

I pulled a nice email from my cell phone yesterday, in the parking lot of the Crazy Horse Memorial. It was from Richard Rosenblatt, Founder and President of Tone-Cool Records. In that email, he was kind enough to grant permissions to play his artists in The Roadhouse. Thanks, Richard.

Let’s Party
Posted in Uncategorized on 5 August 2005

The 25th Roadhouse is sitting patiently on the server, awaiting only it’s addition to the feed. I’ll do that on Saturday, as regularly scheduled. This show started as nearly 50 discrete little pieces that all had to be sequenced and stitched together in some logical order. I’ve spent most of my evenings this week doing […]

Choke Be Gone
Posted in Uncategorized on 1 August 2005

I’ve finally managed to migrate all the shows (including this week’s show) to Libsyn. After just a week on the service, I can heartily state that these guys are doing it right. The bandwidth is great. The reporting is outstanding. And, they seem to be very good to work with. All in all, it’s just […]

After the great cut Handle With Care from the Alligator CD Nine Lives by Little Charlie and the Nightcats, I went into a somewhat long explanation of the different types of harmonica you […]
