Birth Of A Podcast iF:001 Podcast

Do you like music?

Me too.

I listen to tons of different bands in a broad range of languages introducing me to an amazingly eclectic array of genres, styles and hybrids of all of the above. If I'm awake, my soundtrack is on. Sometimes it's music, sometimes it's the birds in my backyard, I'm simply addicted to audio.

From real-time, streaming live performances from the other side of the world to fresh interpretations of compositions written before anyone ever even heard of Thomas Edison.

I'm lucky enough to own a modest collection of cassettes, reel to reels, 8 Tracks, cds and of course, vinyl.

Did I mention that I've also got a shitload of mp3’s, enough of which to fill about 8.5 60 GB iPods, 125 4GB nanos or 1,000 .5 GB Shuffles.


I'm guessing there's probobly not some magic software I can download from versiontracker.com that'll count and tag my albums for me, which means I gotta go analog manual in order to get some kind of tally in the form of a pie chart regarding ratios of release dates, categories and lable info.

I figured that I might as well convert to mp3 whatever it is I'm listening to that I might want to access and share in the future.

The result of each session's harvest are packaged into a little podcast project: iF: Irregular Frequency.
