Over the past few days I’ve been playing around with a few bits of AV that I think have made me realise that PCDC isn’t the way forward for me. It’s time to wheel out the old dinosaur that is bitjobs for the masses! and bring it back for good.
It might just be a coincidence, but it’s exactly four years tomorrow since I first started podcasting with a mammoth 90 minute show (!). Thankfully as the shows increased in numbers, the length went down to a more manageable 30-45 minutes per show.
I’m not expecting to return to the glory days of loads of show related emails, but it will be good to use the followers I have on Twitter to get the shows heard and shared with others. BFM Daily was one of the most popular incarnations of the show; 15 minutes of independent music, minimal chatter and released everyday. It took a hell of a lot to get a show out everyday, but it was damn fun and they were some of the best shows I’ve produced.
So, here we go. It’s going to be slow to start with, but I will be devoting as much time as I can in between work and spending time with the kids and, with a bit of luck we’ll get back to the good old days of regular shows, a large-ish audience and a lot of quality music.
