This is for me as shocking and upsetting as Bowie or Prince or Cohen: Frank Delaney obituary. So re: Joyce will be an uncompleted masterwork. I am deeply saddened,

Charles, if ever there was a more compelling reason to lose your podcast cherry, it's re: Joyce (even more than Mike Duncan's History of Rome).

@Music+ Been in my listen list for a while. Valerie is a great pop song (and incidentally a great family sing along song when the kids were young) --  three great versions here. Fill your boots and listen to them all. Contains bonus funk.

All Songs +1: Mark Ronson On Making Something Old New Again

Image/photo




On this week's +1 Podcast, we talk with producer, DJ and musician Mark Ronson about the allure of vintage sounds, and why he chose to build his career around making the old sound new again.
Arto's Channel
  
Really good stuff! Ronson is really something.

But, I love, absolutely love Winehouse, what a great singer... wish they'd "discover" an unreleased album or two (there must be some track out there, on somebody's USB drive).

When Dr. Sacks announced a few months ago that he had terminal cancer and wouldn't do any more interviews, we asked him if he'd talk with us one last time. This is that conversation.

Sad to say the estimable Pete Cogle is winding down his podcasting activities (though the whole of his back catalogue is on on his site.) Listening to the latest (and penultimate) Dub Step Zone and this track smacked me round the head: Cractal Frunk by Mopichet. Lots to love.

I think The Dub Zone will continue. PC Podcast and The Dub Step Zone have both released final episodes.

Before I recorded by 500th PCP, Graham Holland from It’s a Frogs Life Acoustic Podcast asked me if I’d like to do a PC Frogcast, with the best acoustic tracks I’ve played on PCP.  I delved back into the archives, all the way back to PCP#6 and came up with the following.  Find more about Graham and his acoustic podcast here!

It’s A Frog’s Life Acoustic Podcast Show 132 – PC Frogcast, with tracks by …… Lawrence Blatt, Paddy Rasta, Lay Low, Bubamara Brass Band, Orca, Le Trio Joubran, Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers, ICHI, Matt Stevens, Dead Heart Bloom, Romashka, Lull, Keston Cobblers’ Club, Slow Club.

When podcasts only give an iTunes link on their website and you have to hunt and fiddle around for bloody ages to find a proper rss feed. I am looking specifically at you: "Too hip for itself" Solid Steel. Brilliant podcast by the way.

I'm a little reluctant to do two PCPs in a row, but there are times when you just have to. This is chuffin' tremendous. No doubt at all, Pete Cogle is the best Creative Commons podcaster in the business. Sorry Dan Lynch, Cogle does eclectic better and waffles less.

I will report on the Ill Papa Giraffe album I've just downloaded from Bandcamp when I've battered it for a few days, but this opening tune is great and intelligent and funny. It will not be the only tune from this set that I'll be investigating further.

We are thoroughly enjoying the How Jamaica Conquered the World podcast. Short at 10-15 minutes a pop, but a nice mix of vox pop, archival stuff and music. I am pleased that my life-long passion for reggae (and associated forms and off-shoots) has put me in the position of recognizing pretty much every tune (so far). I'm hoping for a bit more #cricket.

We've only just started to listen to this, so I can't comment on it all (but it's Cogle, so it's not going to be rubbish), but this is the best opening to a podcast I've heard in ages. The dogs all got up and ran away.

I have problems with opus. They will play in VLC but not in QuodLibet. This is crazy because I believe they use the same gstreamer backend. I've never looked into it too closely as that particular podcast gets converted to mp3 because my mobile listening device won't opus.
