A few announcements regarding the Retrospace Podcast....

First, it is now to be called Retrospace Radio.  It has annoyed me immensely over the past year or so that this isn't technically a proper podcast.  I don't ever talk - it's just music with various clips thrown in.  When I initially started these posts, I had every intention of recording myself - I even bought a mike.  That dream was short lived.  Let's just say, Johnny Fever I am not.  I sounded like Bob Ross on quaaludes.  It was awful and I've been sticking to the music ever since... but the title remained "podcast" until today.

Also, I am changing the format of these podcasts (now radio episodes).  In the past, they have been a beautiful tapestry of nostalgia - an admixture of commercials, movie clips, songs, TV themes, etc.  Needless to say, they took forever to make.  I could write ten posts in the time it took me to make a single podcast.    So, I am primarily sticking to just music, without a whole lot of bells and whistles.  This sucks, but on the upside I can now deliver podcasts much more frequently... and they'll be longer.  This one is thirty minutes.

And lastly, each episode will have a theme.  For instance, there will be episodes with songs only about drugs, TV theme episodes, porn soundtrack episodes, etc.  You get the picture.  To start with, we'll go with something simple - "instrumentals".  Enjoy.
