Ouch! I just realized that I played the same Myriam Makeba 45 that I already played 4 weeks before... that's pretty damn embarrassing and goes to show that my brain seems to finaly give in after decades of uninhibited alcohol abuse. Damn!

Would it be possible to put the playlist in the podcast metadata?

Oh, and was it the Les Volcans song that had 'Around the World' in the background? Any idea where to find more of their stuff?
  Wed. 11/26/08 9:49am Frank:

I don't really know what "podcast metadata" is but I've asked at the radio station... I don't even own an iPod.

I have another few records by Les Volcans that I'm sure will get some airplay one day. They've also been featured on the excellent (yet weirldy named) comp "African Scream Contest" with a pretty amazing Latin Jazz tune. I have a monster Afrobeat 45 by them and a few LPs.

The metadata is basically stuff like the title, picture, and what not that go along. There's also a possibility to add notes - some podcasts put their playlists in there. Not a huge deal, but it'd be nice.

I'm sure that's going to turn out to be the really frustrating thing about listening to this podcast - discovering all this great, *out of print* music...

Would it be possible to have the files as directly downloadable mp3 instead of scheduled podcasts - like you used to do at voodoo funk?
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:12am Franc O:

Sorry Amos, the shows are only available as is. It's probably best if you subscribe to the podcast.

That was a great song by Sweet Breeze. Any idea what album it came from?
