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.
