Last night I took part in a live ustream broadcast with Paul Nicholls and about 10 others. It was extremely enjoyable and really hit home how much I loved doing my shoutcast streams a few years ago.
A lot of people have said that podcasters are just wannabe Radio DJs. This might be true, but I know I’d rather be able to talk to a few mates and play some music that I like than be told to choose from a playlist and feign excitement as another mindnumbing competition is announced.
At the end of the show last night, Paul tweeted about getting a few people together on a rota basis to do what he was doing each week.
This got me thinking; we could take the people interested in broadcasting their own shows and create a Ustream channel that has different hosts on each week. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but it would be good to take the live format and use a network of viewers/listeners to get everything out there.
A portion of this was braindumped at 2am this morning, so it might not make too much sense. Just thought I’d get it out there.
