Just a castaway…

Today kind of rules.  I have actually had a pretty incredible couple of days, and I don’t see that trend ending any time soon.  It’s an attitude, really – and I seem to have it.  For the time being, at least.

Been deeply entrenched in music lately.  Making playlists, posting videos, sharing songs and stories.  Loving it.  It’s making me want to pursue my idea of creating a podcast with several people whose taste I admire. A sort of pirate radio, without the boat.

I have sent out an invitation to several “specialists” in an attempt to create a sort of A-Team of DJ’s.  People whose musical taste is similar yet completely different to my own.  My hope is to create a podcast that can be listened to as one giant track of all the different DJ’s, as well as breaking up each persons show so people can listen to whoever they like.

I have entertained this idea for over a year.  It’s time to try and make it happen.  What on Earth do I have to lose, really? If nothing else, I have the fun of putting together some playlists – which I already do.

I should mention, I have no idea how to even begin creating a podcast.  However, I believe I am savvy enough to figure that one out.

There is still one specialist I need to contact, as I think he’d be amazing.  Thing is, I don’t think he’s too reliable, but I may be wrong. He has an incredibly unique knowledge of music that I think would make for an interesting show.  A sort of genealogy of bands, from where they started to what they are doing now, and all the bands they formed in-between.  Plus, he’s deeply into vinyl – which is always good.

The seed has been planted.  The fruit could be pretty damn sweet.
