Relaxed release schedule for summer 2007

Tuesday, July 3, 2007 - 4:59 pm

You may have already noticed that I haven’t been releasing shows regularly for the last few months. I needed to forgive myself the weekly production schedule during a particularly busy spring. I plan to produce a few shows over the summer on no particular release schedule and will be back into regular production in September.

Have a great summer!

Check your iTunes subscription

Wednesday, August 16, 2006 - 11:12 am

I had some problems with the iTunes page for Electric Sky in July.  After almost two weeks, iTunes identified a problem on their end and corrected it.  That fix has apparently broken all of the iTunes subscriptions to Electric Sky that predate the fix.

If you were subscribed to Electric Sky through iTunes prior to August 6, you will have to unsubscribe then resubscribe in order to have your subscription remain current.

What is Electric Sky?

Friday, August 11, 2006 - 11:30 am

ELECTRIC SKY produces Podcast programs that feature engaging, creative and critical ideas and great music.

PORTRAIT is a weekly, short format Podcast that offers a narrow field of view about a particular subject, person, event or theme, in 10 minutes or less.  The theme song for Portrait is Big Foot by Robert Farrell.

LANDSCAPE is a 30 minute Podcast in which individual segments contribute to a more broad view of a subject. Each edition is in the form of a magazine, documentary, or investigative radio show.

You can subscribe to Electric Sky’s Portrait and Landscape through iTunes Subscribe using iTunes, or by using a standard RSS Subscribe to Electric Sky using RSS subscription program.

ES2ES2 is my breakout show; a behind the scenes look at Electric Sky, and more.  It’s my opportunity to share outtakes and insights, and occassionally I’ll ramble on about something completely unrelated.

You can subscribe to ES2 through iTunes Subscribe using iTunes, or by using a standard RSS Subscribe to Electric Sky using RSS subscription program.

The One has arrived

Wednesday, May 3, 2006 - 11:44 pm

For me, terrestrial radio’s model of linear listening (as Tod Maffin describes in an article on his site) has become increasingly difficult to accomodate. Even more so since I became a voracious consumer, and producer, of Podcasts.

Enter the CBC, the only radio station in Canada worth listening to. Earlier today, it launched a suite of Podcasts that cover a full range of its most popular and influential Radio One programs, regional programming that so many are dependent on, and some programs that are only available as Podcasts.

Congratulations to the CBC for reinventing itself!!! Now, if only they would open up their archives for Podcasts.

The One arrives today

For those of you who have been asking, this serves as a reminder that The One is coming, today.

Celebrating one year of Podcasting

Thursday, April 27, 2006 - 10:48 pm

April 29th marks the first anniversary of Electric Sky. So much has happened in the last year – it’s almost hard to comprehend. I’ve learned a million things and met a lot of great people that I now call friends.

To mark this milestone, I have relaunched my website with a new look and a revamped logo. Thanks to Nico for all of his hard work!

Robert Farrell launches Podcast

Friday, February 24, 2006 - 7:00 am

My good friend, Robert Farrell, has launched a guitar instruction podcast. Bigfoot, from Robert’s CD Elegant Chaos, is the theme for my Portrait shows.


Tuesday, February 21, 2006 - 9:25 am

It’s official. I am now producing three podcasts! My latest Podcast initiative, Growing Enthusiasm, is about adults and children discovering life and was launched last night with the release of our Tobogganning episode.
