Recent Podcast Plays

After hearing about the Podsafe Music Network on Adam Curry's The Daily Source Code, I knew that I needed to get my music up there. Not only did I quickly upload a bunch of tunes, but I got on my gmail account and told as many people as would listen to do the same. I envisioned all these Seattle jazz folks invading the new site, and thankfully, we are finally getting some notice. Since first putting my tracks up a few weeks ago, I have had at least ten plays in podcasts of various styles and genres, and within a couple days of putting their tracks up last week, both The Core and Swampdweller are getting notice as well. While the PMN is designed to allow podcasters to just grab music and use it in their podcasts, I greatly appreciated the e-mail I received from Sundown Lounge host Larry Winfield prior to his using The High Country in his podcast last week. Larry's show is a great mix of poetry, music, politics, and "Venue Verite" -- snipets of open-mic sessions from across the West Coast -- and his variety and easy-going style make for a very listenable podcast. Thanks, Larry! Here's a list of some podcasts we've been featured on recently:
